Once again we shall be participating in Spetisbury Open Gardens, this year on Sunday 2nd June. Buy your Gardens Passport for the various gardens from the Spetisbury Village Hall, where afternoon teas will be served from 2pm. Or if you fancy something else, burgers and hot dogs will be available at the station from 12 noon until about 2pm (or when the food runs out). We had hoped to have two miniature steam engines working between the platforms but sadly they can not now attend. See you there!
Warm spring sunshine was on hand for today’s work party. We concentrated our efforts again at the site of the signal box and continued clearance of the area outside of the building foundations. We had hoped to uncover traces of the step up to the door of the signal box, however we could find none. Never mind, we will carry on the excavations another time. Our resident carpenter Mick came up with his wife Angela and carried out some minor adjustments to the miniature level-crossing gate Mick had made for our new wildlife pond on the ‘down’ platform.
