Post Working Bee Saturday February 2nd / News
on: January 25, 2019, 21:12

Summer is beating down on us and at the Hall the plum trees are laden (to the delight of the jam-makers on our team) and other areas are ... well, have gotten away from us this year and badly in need of a trim before they dry off and become a fire hazard. In addition to the grounds there is new (and old) tagging to be scrubbed off or painted over and always more broken glass and fallen plaster.

Saturday the 2nd has been chosen particularly because Sunday the 3rd we have a group of residents from the Campion Hall days coming back to revisit as part of a reunion event, and we'd like to have the place as presentable as can be managed.

Other news; in an ..exciting?.. encounter earlier this month we had one burglar scavenging for metal arrested red-handed after he started hacksawing at the old motor for the kitchen coolroom just through the wall from where we were finishing up a tour. Unfortunately I am pretty sure he was a small-time opportunist and not the elusive person who has been systematically scavenging through the building taking bits of metal which were literally screwed down, in particular the metal catches from the windows. (Many of the windows have now had to be wired, tied or glued shut to prevent then flapping and breaking in the wind.)
