By way, the steel was nicely paid for by the aditnow calendar fund, many thanks to all who supported the trust.

The area with the truck is slowly clearing of silt but this is accumulating in the entrance cross cut and could present a problem in the future.

I have shovelled up what I could and banked it on the side in the hope that it will dry out to a solid bank, but will have to wait and see what happens.

The area with the truck is now a nice area and a natural gathering point and its planned to give underground talks there at NAMHO 2019.
