Top Tuesday Task!
Well, I'm now totally confused and I think it's Wednesday... Hope I remember to turn up to GoodGym tomorrow haha!
We were set to work in the outside area, sorting out burnable "real" wood and non-burnable plywood into 2 separate piles to be picked up later in the week. There were some great finds in the shed... a massive picture frame, a small cart and 2 tennis balls.
The other job was one that seemed simple but was trickier than at first glance... It was separating the plywood from some staging blocks... Ditching the plywood and saving the blocks underneath for reuse in some performances later in the year. Jen demonstrated her midwifery contortionist skills, Val wielded a hammer and Lucy made use of her walking boots.
Yet again we proved that many hands make light work as we got through the task in less time than we had allocated so most of us were home in time for Bake Off!
On Saturday we're back at the theatre, this time for some set painting and possibly sawing! Sign up here if you're interested in lending a hand.
