The Big Makeover Weekend 12 – 13th Sept, 2015

Another great Big Weekend Makeover at Burford

Jez and Caroline Rose joined Carol and James Fowler in inspiring, organising and leading an amazing team of willing helpers in tackling a host of jobs at Burford over the weekend of 12th and 13th September.

Our loyal supporters (and their friends and family) cleared rubbish, repaired, painted, tiled, weeded and planted all weekend, fortified as necessary with teas, coffees, sandwiches and cakes … and the sun shone!

One major – and urgent – task was identified: clearing the blocked gullies and gutters and re-pointing the failed ridges around the FG room. Jez and James rose (literally!) to the challenge, spending most of Saturday up a ladder cleaning and re-pointing. A truly magnificent effort that will prevent future water damage – well done Jez and James!

Hero of the weekend was seven year old Oliver who wrestled single handed with the enormous rubbish bags before executing a perfect Skip Stomp!
