The Open Day - Before and After

The plan was far too ambitious but nevertheless a successful open day was held on 13th August.  The photos show what has been achieved over the last 4 months.

It isn't going to be completed on time!

It's raining today and due to other commitments I've now only got three days left to prepare for the open day.  It isn't going to be ready.
