Fantastic job on all the benches, well done.

Thank you @Snowball ! We've been getting some great comments from people passing by while we've been doing the work too.

We were extra-earlybirds this morning and completed reassembly of the Munday family sponsored bench and first stage reassembly of the Carver Theatre sponsored bench too. So that just leaves final treatment and plaque for the Munday one and four more slats to sand for the Carver, then final reassembly, treatment and plaque. We also have the Ardek Ltd bench to give a final treatment and plaque too.  Unfortunately the Carver slats are too wet to sand this morning as planned but hopefully won't take too long to dry now they are undercover. The end is in sight!
