Update by Gabrielle Ward

Good afternoon,

I hope you're all enjoying this lovely weather we're having!

Just following on from my recent update on the HSAF delivery, I thought I'd pop on and share some photos with you now that they are installed. I'd just like to take this opportunity to thank you for your patience and cooperation during the delivery of the HSAF.

The concrete footpaths around the PST's (Primary Settlemant Tanks) have been laid. Over on the filter beds, the rotating arm on filter bed 1 has been replaced.

The site team have become very proud of their newest guests taking up residency on site. As you can see in the photo included, we have had some swallows nesting in our store cabins. 

I'll be posting more updates in the upcoming weeks so keep a look out!
