Progress Friday 22nd May 2015

Dear all,

Nice and reasonably pleasant outside saw a hive of activity surrounding the BSK as the deadline is looming. The professional gasman-come-plumber was there all day and there's now running water at the sink and one could light the oven should one wish. Ben lent a hand to get the reading lights working in the compartments, LED of course. Nick started to fit the kick boards in the kitchen.

Also in production mode was the station team. They battled forward with the new Booking Office at Wirksworth. A start was made on constructing the framework for the till positions so that eventually the electric sockets and network connection cables can be laid.

Meanwhile, inside the current Booking Office, virtually the entire day was spent on the phone dealing with all sorts of enquires regarding the Carnival this weekend, Shottle Soiree evenings and of course, Afternoon Tea. Fred and Iris could be seen through the window planting new flowers to ensure the station looks pretty for the visitors.

The Infrastructure Dept was also constructing today with the new bund wall beginning to take shape down the yard.
