RRT constructs a new sandbag store
During a recent meeting with senior members of the Wilton Council it was mentioned that there was a need for a building to be erected for the storage of sandbags at the local Cricket pavilion. As willing community members, the PBCC RRT offered to help out with the project which council were very grateful for.
As soon as the drawings were received RRT jumped straight into action. A team of willing ground workers set off early one Saturday Morning to set up the timber shuttering for the concrete base, when all levels were accurate and the shuttering was prepared, they poured the concrete slab and troweled it off to a fine finish.
The following session saw an enthusiastic team of carpenters erect the timber frame building, cutting all materials to size and constructing a very strong frame which was bolted to the adjacent pavilion building for extra rigidity.
Finally after a hard day’s work, and as dusk was fast approaching, the roof sheets were securely fixed down, the timber shuttering was removed and the site was cleared up and handed back to the local Wilton Council – who were delighted with their brand new Sandbag storage shelter. Let’s hope that the sandbags don’t need to come out from their new home over the next few months!
The RRT skilled team of builders set off home and are getting prepared for another RRT event – watch this space…!
