Beeswax Dyson Farming - potato store

Groundworks underway

I refer to my last blog dated 23 Feb 2018 which reported that planning approval had been granted for the construction of a new potato store.

You will see from the following photos that work has commenced in delivering the underlying foundation for the new potato store. At this rate, it won't be long before steelwork is being erected and we will see another building in place to complete this impressive modern farm complex.

Nocton Cricket Club - construction progressing

New pavilion

I refer to my last blog dated 16 Mar 2018.

Despite the difficult weather conditions this Spring, it is commendable that progress has been maintained in constructing the new cricket pavilion.

The concrete base has been laid, along with pipes for all services. A new septic tank has been sunk into the ground. The wooden frame has been erected and roofing trusses put in place. Internal stud walls have been constructed and the building has been boarded out.

It has also been necessary to lay a new access track to enable materials to be delivered to site without churning up the saturated land. This has enabled the project to continue, despite the inclement weather conditions.

Plate 5 - woodwork to eaves being finalised

Plate 6 - breathable membrane applied

Plate 7 - almost weather tight
