20th June - Windy`s windmill is complete!

Thanks to Elite Access Solutions for the loan of an elevating platform to fit the sails to the mechanism on the windmill. This was a much harder task than we had thought but the result was superb!

13th June 2015 (& 6th June)

Only 9 week's to go!!!

Update 30th May 2015

Good progress made on:

Chris Stacey, Alan Stacey, Mark Keeley and Andrew Morris
