On Friday a mixed group of staff, students and volunteers tackled the old steps at Lakeside. They were slowly falling in to disrepair and needed some attention.
Stu had a master plan which luckily avoided us moving the great slabs of concrete – for which we were all grateful.
We replaced all the wooden boards and stobs and then used a breaker bar to smash up the concrete behind each step.
We then topped up each step with aggregate and tamped it to give a smooth finish.
A very productive day which we all enjoyed. Thank you to our dedicated volunteer Paul and our three students Gabriel, Matt and Jeremy. And ofcourse Stu, Jenny and Andrew.
