We had our first delivery of straw bales today (408 to be exact) and thanks to our early bird helpers,the truck was unloaded within the hour! Amazing!!! Lunch ended up happening mid morning and some of the helpers were able to get on with the rest of their day before noon. Other vollies, including some of us latecomers, continued on shifting bales to different areas of the house and tidying up the loose straw... which was everywhere!
Thank you, thank you to everyone who came along today. We are eternally grateful for your kindness.
But guess what...? we get to do it all over again in 2 weeks time. Anyone interested in joining the fun should arrive by 8:30am on 23 July... when we take delivery of another full load.
Actually, to make up the complete order, we're receving 200 bales this Thursday too, relying pretty much on the cheap labour which is often available during the school hols. Visitors welcome!
