2017 February -- paving

December  2016

The Standard drive/ Pitcairn Rd parking 
was eroded, rocky and the underneath of cars
was being scraped.

Blairgowrie Primary School offered me
a huge amount of interlocking paving bricks
A very kind contractor offered to donate
half of the costs and to organise the
laying of the paving .
The sub contractor came in and work began.

Donations came in from BCA, CRA and all the users of the park

one man's rubbish is another man's treasure
The bricks were loaded

 and brought across the road to the parking
area - what a huge pile!

The team started digging and levelling the ground

The paving bricks went down so quickly

 and before Christmas it was done .
What a wonderful way to end the year!
 Thank you to everyone involved


January 2017

John Barrow offered me the use of a TLB to clear and
level the other part of the parking area.

The TLB arrived

In a few hours it was all done.

Top Dam

This huge poplar tree split down the centre and damaged  a
few walls and electric fences of  houses on the park's perimeter
City Park  cleared those branches and
Parkrun cut a path through the branches.

 We still have to have the tree cut up and removed-- another big job

 That's all folks --
