A beautiful old folding chair, broken and sitting by the fridge for a year was brought back to life by Ali and Alexis. Slats of the seat and back had broken.

Alexis and his Mum and Dad went to the Wood Store around the corner. They sourced the perfect strip of wood to make the new slates from.

At the Bevy in the morning:

Alan took apart and examined an old record player brought in by Ally. To get it working he cleaned it up and changed the fuse.
