Improvements at the Belfry

The caravan has been stripped and is now brought down to the chassis which is being given to Walt Foxwell.

An attempt is being made to clear the ‘cowsh’ from the Belfry track by the farm method of brushing muck off the hardcore surface.  So far it seems to be working well.  The old stove in the Belfry (only two years old!) has been replaced with a fairly new plush enamel surfaced type – it is said to be much more economical with the choke – about three hoppers full per day instead of over double that number.

Regarding the new Belfry a meeting is being called with the Somerset Playing Fields Association and representatives of the Club.  More details later.

Walt Foxwell has fenced both his side and the clubs edge of the new track with the required style and fencing posts.  The club has supplied posts and barbed wire for this purpose.  As soon as the modifications have been made within Walt’s yard his wall can be breached and the cattle grid at the entrance to the Belfry car-park can be laid.  When the new track comes into operation members are asked to bear in mind that they are not able to use this track and that they must park their vehicles in the Belfry car-park.

Arrangements are being finalised with the Wookey Paper mills regarding the lease of their land that will make the shape of the Belfry site ‘square’ and the later we can extends the car park to the other side of the new track.
