Well, preparations for this weekend’s West Midlands Climate Action Fossil Fools Day convergence have been well under way over the last few days. With the reorganisation of the kitchen area and the fantastic donation of a wood burning stove to go in a larger communal tee-pee, as well as donations of building materials, more tools and and a lot of hard work things on camp are coming along nicely. Morale levels are high and we are very excited about the weekends events.
We would like to ask everyone who is planning to make the trip up this weekend who does not have a tent to bring a canvas/tarpaulin and some rope with you if you can, the more we have the more communal space can be created and the more comfortable, warm and dry we will all be. Please also bring some food if you are able, all contributions are appreciated.
Updated wish list:
A strong wheelbarrow – doesn’t need to be new but does need to be strong!
Food is always welcomed!
Tarps & Ropes
Straw/Sawdust/Woodchips to soak up the mud a little
Shelving (old & broken is fine, we have nails)
Metal Storage containers (old biscuit tins are great, but we have this hopefully not too far-fetched vision of a filing cabinet full of fruit & veg )
High quality nails as many of what we have are not quite up to task!
Tent poles (we have a 3/4 man dome tent with no poles that could be made use of)
