Just an Update on the fort, Palisade!
The greatest break was the arrival of North Lanarkshire Justice Reform service. They had met with us earlier onsite to discuss possible involvement and we offered a programme and the necessary steps were taken. The JRS arrived with a small Digger and this allowed progress that we had been aching for. Pun intended.
The Swiss Volunteers from the Im Speck Highland Games came and performed wonders. We met through the band Saor Patrol being hired to perform at their Highland Games in Switzerland. We had diggers and forklifts on site and the Gatehouses that they had previously built by hand earlier in the year were superseded by a mass of palisade being erected.
The Journey to completion has been a long one and many people have unselfishly given their time and effort to see what sometimes seemed not a lot in the scale of it. This outer Palisade is a massive undertaking on its own and to understand it you can only do this by taking part. These logs are massive the ditches are deep the tonnage of rocks and material that are required to backfill the trench is immense. This is all done by hand manually too.
