From Simon Budd:
This morning work started in preparation -
Brockham Green Village Pump.... Part ll
A few years ago 2012 the pump house was sensitively renovated, at the time the railings were not thought to need any attention. Time has passed and the wooden posts have rotted. The Parish Council and Brockham Bonfire have permission from Mole Valley District Council to renovate the posts around the Village Pump with like for like replacements.
- Mr. M. Nadell has supplied home grown Oak post
- Mr. J. Keen has sawn them to size.
- Mr. M. Harding will refit the rails.
Each post will be put into position by children from the village who have been invited to bury a small time capsule under each post. The opening of which will be when the posts are next replaced, possibly 50 - 100 years from now.
