Blitz 120: Ascot Vale Special School
The Ascot Vale Special School blitz went very nicely. About 15 blitzers turned up, most of them first timers with lots of enthusiasm and wonder. The first job was the retrofitting of nine corrugated iron beds into wicking beds, under the guidance of the Seila the wicking-man. All the pipes had been precut, and were ready to go, and with Seila’s workshop it was a great success. It usually is with Seila the wicking-man.
As well as the wicking-beds, 80% of the chook house was completed. Lunch was held in the students kitchen, and was a typical menu: the volunteers were pleased to be immersed in the school’s programme.
In spite of the fact that, personally, this blitz was a blitz, with just three weeks of preparation at a very busy time of year, I’d love to host part two sometime soon. Maybe see you there…
