Portacabin! The story in pictures.

We have found a Portacabin to use as our new premises, and while it needs a lot of work, it was delivered to the site on 4 June 2021. With great excitement from all involved, it was swung into place by an expert truck / crane operator, and the real fun starts now as we prepare to refurbish it.

The portacabin was lifted from its site at the Mariott Hotel onto the back of a truck.
It wasn’t the easiest of lifts – there was an electricity substation that had to be avoided!
The cabin was secured onto the truck, ready for delivery.

Here it comes! The first view of our new premises for most of the members.
Ready to start offloading.
Impressive truck…
Can we really lift this into position?
Here we go!
An expert makes it look easy.
Incoming! Look Out Below!
Touch-down! We have premises!
Lookin’ Good from the street

It needs a bit of work inside
Or maybe more than a bit…
Let the refurbishment commence!

The wrecking crew get to work
Time to remove the old ceiling
Things progressed quickly at first

Some bits look relatively OK
Unfortunately, under the surface we found some serious damp in places
Undaunted, we were prepared for a few issues. All of the interior of the Portacabin will end up here.
