Donation from Be All You Can

The new tables and chairs from Be All You Can

This week we had a donation of 32 chairs and 4 tables from our delighful director Sue Anderson who runs Be All You Can at Rigwood house, on the other side of Saltburn bank.

When Sue and her partner Bernie established Be All You Can at Rigwood they relied on the good will of people who donated them furniture and other things to help them start out and now they’re returning the favour.

These are the first tables we have and the first chairs beyond the cafe so we’ll use them in the meeting room, which will enable us to begin to use this as a hireable space (which is great!).

Our thanks go to Graham Neal for transporting the chairs and tables to us:

What We Found In The Old Oil Store

Today we opened up the old oil store in the grounds of the building and found a treasure trove of stuff.

Here’s what we found: 10 sinks and their attachments; what we think is a letter-sorter*; a coal bucket (with coal still in it!); a give way sign and a stop children sign, two doors, odd bits and bobs of wood.

It felt like an episode of Supermarket Sweep when Emily Hesse, artist in residence, got out her trolley to cart the materials out of the store.

Supermarket Sweep!

She is collecting items found in the building to make artwork with.

It was all hands on deck for volunteers Mark Parham, Emily Hesse, Tammy Guy-Jobson, Margaret Guy-Jobson, Peter Neal and Graham Neal to cart the rest of the stuff into the building.
