A very successful working party with many of the planed tasks accomplished. The weather was terrible. The rain fell in sheets and the hut was lashed by high winds for most of the weekend. The rain penetrated the upper right dorm around the end of the purlin and wet the mattress and bunk. The source cannot be established at present. On Saturday evening Chris and Phil entertained and enthused (frightened!) everyone with slides of their last trip to the Dolomites.

Tasks accomplished:

  • Elidir Fawr – Skirting board and shelves installed and safety bar on bunk fitted (Chris and Phil). – Ceiling joints skimmed and ceiling painted (Jim and Lester).

  • Glyder Fawr – Ceiling joints taped and skimmed and ceiling painted (Jim and Lester). – Door frame and temporary door installed between EF and GF (Chris and Phil).

  • Crib Goch – Safety bar fitted to bunk (Chris and Phil).

  • Snowdon – drying out bunk and mattress (Lester).

  • Dormitory hall – Plywood floor laid for cork tiles (Jim and Lester).

  • Gents washroom – Cubicles and adjoining wall painted (Iain and Sheena). – Pipe work dismantled and cleaned (Frank). – Shower fan cleaned (Virginia). – New shower curtain installed (Sheena).

  • Ladies washroom – Shower drain, fan and washbasins cleaned (Virginia).

  • Lounge – Stove maintained (Frank). – Cleaned (Margaret).

  • Common room – General cleaning (Pam and Margaret).

  • Storeroom – Cleaned and tided (Margaret).

  • Underfloor drainage – Investigated and found to be fine (Iain).

  • Track – Ditches cleaned and gorse cut back (John and Virginia).

  • Catering – Lunches and teas (Pam).

Many thanks to everybody for their hard work
