Fog Horn Cottage & Walking Safety Signs

Just a quick one to let everyone know the exciting news. 

The electrical works in the Fog Horn Keeper’s Cottage began this week.  Some of the old wiring (not all) has been removed and the new wiring, plug sockets etc have started to go in.  We can not remove all the old wiring and junction boxes because it is all listed, some looks nice and interesting and some could do with removing but we are not allowed.  I personally am very excited about this as it will make the renovation works inside go much faster.  Our target of renting the Cottage out by the end of Summer is looking more and more hopeful.

A few pictures are included but not very interesting unfortunately, I put them in so people would believe me that work has progressed!!

Now on to the walking safety signs.  We are very dedicated to health & safety on Flat Holm for obvious reasons (It’s very hard to get off the island sometimes).  So we have come up with a novel new idea, I’m not sure if it will take off though.  Safety signs that follow you round the island!!  Have a look at the photo and you can see Beryl The Welsh Black Sheep helping us to maintain our high standards of safety!!!

On a serious note, she became trapped inside a wooden frame for holding safety signage and I spotted her walking around with it on the central grassland.  Me and Bob our nearly resident carpenter jumped in to sheep rescue mode and released her.  She is fine and well.  Thankyou for your help though Beryl, it was much appreciated.

    Perhaps Beryl could also carry advertising boards “Teas now being served in the Barracks” – that sort of thing! Well done Bob for releasing her.
