The Working Bee at Tritton Hall Sat 31st January 2015

This Working Bee was a more specialised event so the cast was smaller - Ralph, John, Chris, Kerry, Sharyn & Sandra, and fortunately the day was much cooler!

We wondered what was under the Reedy River Bushmen sign so who better that Reedy River's fiddler, Ralph to remove it?

 Sharyn broke more of the broken wall







 
Ralph removing the old power board, after making sure it was no longer connected to electricity!
