The car tent roof was destroyed by the three weekends of winds in February. The marquee was from Gala Tent and it had done brilliantly well having been erected as a temporary measure in 2014 – the willow has grown a bit since then.
Helen came over to help. It was really hard work putting the new roof covering on and I’m still aching. Normally you would lower the frame to ground level but the legs were siezed so we had to lift the heavy covering over the roof at full height using ropes and a scaffold tower.
