Friday 8th December Temple Avenue Allotments Dagenham

Our woodturning club is relocating from its school base that it has enjoyed the benefits from since 2004. We have just placed a 20' shipping container in a very convenient place next to the club room and kitchen. Next week we are collecting all our lathes and equipment to put in this secure store.


The delivery lorry was fitted with a long reach Hiab crane.

All very hi tech these days – the driver controls the whole operation with a remote control. 

The front stabilizers were massive.

Our chairman was making a video; hopefully he will put it on our website -


Finally in place with great precision. This was the relatively  easy bit – the organisation for it took some time and had its moments. 

We had planned on a 40’ container but we could not get it placed. Controlling the parking was testing – the police are not interested and the local authority have a 10 day response time. We canvassed the local residents and put notices on the lamp stands as well as patrolling the pinch points for the hours preceding delivery.

Next week tool pickup from our old venue.
