Monday/Tuesday Update

Posted: March 30, 2010 by defendhuntingtonlane in Uncategorized

Hi folks!

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
Walkie Talkies
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 πŸ™‚ )
Cargo nets
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)
The lovely folk of West Midlands Camp for Climate Action and anyone else who would like to join us πŸ™‚

    Thanks everyone for their hard work and efforts on site – and behind, with supplies, could I just add a simple request?
    Those coming at the weekend – please bring along some water with you, we have incoming large water containers to allow topping up of precious reserves, and loads of people drink loads of water!
    Every drop counts in the coming days – please bring along what you can carry, we can save it , and that way everyone has Tea or Coffee, and some food that can be shared!
    Many thanks to all contributing, supporting, donating, and attending.

    It was great to visit the site – it’s beautiful there, isn’t it. I’ve left my tent there (small blue one) for anyone to use over the weekend and until I get back. E & M, well done on keeping the blog updated. I hope to be back soon to offer all the support I can πŸ˜‰

    Carrie – youre a star, and also your friend!
    Hope to have some interesting chats later in the coming days around the small fire in the “Rainbows End ” communal Teepee.
    We appreciate your help, given in love and support, should be a bigger Teepee by the weekend.
    Take care,
