Getting ready for Village at War weekend

The cleaned up lock
Well two things happened yesterday.  I spent the morning in the company of some local people, including Dave Blagrove (Chairman of the friends of the Canal Museum), to clear out the summer weeds from the disused top lock (and the inevitable mess from the removal of the boat weighing machine). It does look so much better now - one of those quick jobs that has a huge effect.

The bucket in place
it will be locked!
Also my WWII fire bucket (won on EBay) arrived so that's ready to sit outside my front door over the Village at War weekend.

  1. I must say that those hanging baskets set off your front door very well. I hope the bucket is filled with sand!
