This is Chris from plot 94a. Chris is also my neighbour and is the lucky winner of
half my shed!
Here he is relocating some stones / hardcore for his shed base

And here is the shed base of 94a - well the start of it anyway!

Ah! The sand and cement has arrived. Nice and early - phew!

And is being off loaded - what good timing

Meet the Mulligans!
Here we have (from left to right) Joseph, Reuben & Joe

They arrived in the nick of time with their cement mixer, buckets and a spade!

Good thinking guys, and here they are in action!

This is the start of my base......

Nigel and Chris are making the necessary measurments & Derek dug the framework trench.

They were all helping out, whilst I covered the shop and made tea! I couldn't have done it without them all.

The cement mixer is churning away

The Framework gets filled up and .....

Abaracadabara we have a shed base!
Oh great going boys.....

The Mulligans working on Chris's base

I finally got home at around 4pm after our chip shop lunch (yummy) and immediately started to bake the fairy cakes that I had promised Mavis our Chairwoman that I would bake some for the mayors visit. By this time I was knackered and alot of them look like they have been in a road traffic accident, but after borrowing some more icing sugar from Karen (allotment widow of plot 94a) they looked alot better!

So, an early start for me on the morning of Sunday the 15th as Joe said he will be there at 8am. Who am I to complain? I have been up since 6am anyway.

He said that he is determined to get the shed and the greenhouse up today - and with the mayor arriving at 2pm that could be quite an achievement!!!

The end
