Battery Banter Latest from the Battery
October 2017 saw a few of the group going off to Bovington Tank Museum for the day .They used their own cars so managed a very early start to get there as soon as it opened .. The museum had a model show on ,which the guys were really interested in ,I understand a few items were bought. A good day was had by all
Once again we have our problem with people wanting to vandalize the buildings ect around the battery site . for the second time in a few weeks we also have squatters
that have taken over one of our buildings. you could feel sorry for them but for the complete disgusting mess they not only live in but leave behind them.
A few of the group went to checkout the latest and found bags of rubbish,bedding, takeaway cartons, beer cans, broken bottles and needles lying around the area and of course a area which is being used as their 'toilet' ,, we have to wait on the council to sort it, but its left to us and the council workers to clear the mess after wards
This month was busy for us , Barrie and Neil went along to the Brixham cricket club ,where they picked up a cheque from the rotary club. this is our second year they have kindly given us a dontaion .
The first few weeks have been spent getting everything sorted for the weekend event . it wasnt just a case of putting displays in the grounds but lots of planning a head..which started last year. we have had to have council visits and put in reports etc and of course keep to the conditions that they put in place. so lots more to it then you may think. But after a very busy week or two the weekend went very well , we had a few people who didnt turn up ,who had booked in ( it would have been nice for them to let us know? so we could alot their space to others ..) but apart from that all went well. even the weather was kind, the forecast wasnt good but it turned out fine for us .
we had postive feedback and lovely comments ,we would of course like to thank everyone who helped or came along , you all made it a very successful weekend ...
