Big news this month!
Thanks to Marshalls CPM, we have had a large concrete pipe fabricated and adjusted to our needs to allow us to built our very own Tett Turret.
In the photo above is one of our Trustees, Neil, alongside the Marshalls CPM Production Manager at their site in the South West. A big Slough Fort thank you to all involved at Marshalls!
As well as this, our Volunteers have been working hard applying limewash to the East Wing Battery. This is a very messy job, but is an essential one to keep the Wing Battery in a good condition.
Limewash is a lime and water mix that is very runny – meaning that not only do the walls and ceilings get covered, but our poor Volunteers do, too! Luckily, all our Volunteers have been provided with goggles, masks and overalls to stop their clothes being ruined.
We can’t wait to have you all back later this year!
