WORKING UP A STORM ON THE TOP BALCONY

Trouble is, when renovating, one thing leads to another and Avalon Follett-Smith, with help from Friends of Borrowdale Park, is working up a storm on the top balcony at Borrowdale Park – and emptying the kitty.

But what a difference some paint – along with plenty of elbow grease and a few other things – makes.

The Tote on the top balcony has a fresh new look…the ceiling has been a “big job” involving lots of rhino bond…the floor outside the lift and in the Stewards Quarters still has a long way to go…but let’s talk about fridges.

Theo da Fonseca (company name Cold Control) has transformed the two fridges under the bar counter …formerly best described as scabrous…and cleaned and serviced the cold room – at cost! Thank you, Theo, for your help.

As for the floors – the photograph best tells the story – of what they could be like but sadly are not.

None of this would have been possible without the help of various companies and individuals who believe in racing in Zimbabwe and Borrowdale Park. A thousand times thank you.

FLOORS AT PRESENT

REFURBISHED FRIDGES

Hard to recognise the under-counter fridges now.

CEILING
