A working party comprising Ian McTurk, Mike Hindle, Jim Hargreaves, M Jackson and Steve Drane (son of Jon Drane) spent 2 hours on Satuday morning erecting a Framework-to hold our Walk Board, which had blown down during the winter.
Special praise should go to President Elect Ian who was clerk of works who had planned the project and was in the forefront throughout (this guy has qualities which knows no limits). Also Steve Drane the son of Friend of Rotary Jon Drane was a tremendous help and very much involved, firstly by buying the timber, then by use of his van and for the use of his power tools.
Mike hindle and Jim Hargreaves were willing labourers with M Jackson being Quality Inspector and Health and Safety advisor.
The Framework is now a very substantial and certainly will stand any amount of wind and should be standing for many years.
M Jackson is to approach Brenda and Eddie Threlfall, owners of the fields where the Framework has been erected, to get permission for our Rotary Club to display a board stating something like “The Home of the Rotary club of Church and Oswaldtwistle etc.whenever we are not displaying an event.
