THANK YOU to 10 willing workers who braved the dust (note Julia’s fashionable face-mask) and disorder in the shed behind Coles Hall to discover:
- treasures to be kept for the Parish
- potential garage-sale material
- a truck-load of odds and ends destined for the dump
- one frightened possum!
Items that could be removed from the shed were identified as things to be kept, for Parish use or for sale, or sent to the dump. 3 table-tennis tables, a piano and a number of trestle tables needed some effort to move, however it was decided that a church pew and multiple kneelers could remain where they were.
A break for afternoon tea washed the dust from throats and gave the opportunity to chat before everything was returned – tidily – to the shed.
Despite the quite hard and dusty work, it was a very enjoyable afternoon with a very satisfying result. The next Sorting Day will turn attention to Kay Hall.
