Bloodwise

It’s nearly a year since my daughter Emily died, heartened by all the support that we received for our fundraising efforts we would love to smash last years £15000 total.

We would like to split the money this year between Bloodwise which funds research into blood cancers and Mosaic bereavement charity which has helped Emily’s classmates and teachers cope with her death.

We have teams of people taking part in both the Blenheim triathlon , on the 1st of June, and the Woolacombe half marathon on the 30th June.

If you would like to join us at either of these events just to cheer us on, to take part or add your event please PM me.

Please give generously, it’s so uplifting to see Emily’s story help others.

Sunken feature building taken down

The sub roman sunken feature building at Upton country park has been demolished. The building was completed in 2016, but was vandalised soon after. I had been unable to repair the building because of my daughters ilness and subsequent passing. I’m a little disappointed that the building was dismantled before repairs were attempted, perhaps the building wasn’t located in the best place. I’m glad volunteers were involved in the build and that passing walkers at least managed to learn something of the building techniques and historical context.

Roundhouse finished

I have finally finished the thatching at Parlaunt primary school in Langley Near Slough. The kids helped out daubing the walls and will continue to do so in the last few weeks of school to complete the building.

Purlins finished

The purlins on Parlaunt schools roundhouse build are now finished ready for the thatch. As you can see its really quite strong, I’m completely happy to sit up on top, then again it does need to take over a tonne of thatch so needs to be.

Work begins at Parlaunt school in Slough

I am delighted to start work on a roundhouse at Parlaunt school in Slough. The build started briskly and I was really pleased to get the walls and door frame up in the first two days. This week I will begin work on the rafters.
