Renovating sheds

We have been using this lockdown period to get bits of maintenance done to our house, then one of our neighbours asked us to re-felt his two sheds. When we looked at these, we realised that a bit more work was required before we could even think about the felting as one shed needed a completely new roof, the other one needed sections replacing on it's roof. There were other minor repairs to do too. We really enjoyed this project, as we have always enjoyed this kind of work anyway and the days went really quickly. We tried to re-use wood where we could so that at the end of the day the total cost of materials was under £200 (we bought the best quality felt too!). Our next project is to re-paint old black railings for a neighbour. We could get to like this!!

Kids Fun at Glenmore Lodge

Thanks to Glenmore Lodge, we were able to offer 3 days of activities for children this half term. They kindly let us hire the Lecture Theatre for the afternoons so that we could have fun indoors with quizzes, riddles, rocket building, crosswords, wordgames, etc. We were also able to have the Indoor Wall on Monday and Tuesday too, so despite the weather, kids had fun! Wednesday morning was ideal weather for some Orienteering in Glenmore Forest.

Indoor Climbing with families

Our first Indoor climbing sessions of the year and with local families. Kids love having their parents along especially if the children have been before and yesterday was a great day for everyone.
