The responsible person for the gardens gave us some direction and helped us measuring the court. Also, a voluntary worker of 68 years came in to help us with moving wheelbarrows full of sand the whole morning. There was a great team spirit and it was clear that the only way we could finish it the same day, was by working together efficiently. Everyone worked very hard to make this happen!
In the meantime, the team was supported by the employees of St. Jozef with coffee and cookies and a great sandwich lunch with soup, lemonade and lots of fresh water as the sun became quite hot. After lunch, everybody was somehow recovered from the morning to start again with full spirit in the afternoon. Still quite some work had to be done. We also got some unexpected support, as Yvette, who is on sick leave, also passed by to bring us some chocolates.
Some stones that needed to be put in the corner, needed to be cut and Ingeborg Barenbrug (Bastiaan’s wife) brought the diamond grinder that enabled us to cut these heavy stones. Of course, with all the safety rules in mind, Bastiaan, with earplugs and glasses, cut these stones perfectly.
