Description

Wilbert has been approached by Ballymena council with a view to putting a beacon on top of Slemish for the Queen's Jubilee celebrations. Our name was put forward.

The story is.............

Beacons are being lit across the UK at 10pm on Monday 04th June. We have been asked (ably assisted by the local Territorial Army) to get the metal brazier in sections, about 15 pallets, and 2 bales of hay up to the summit over the weekend of 02/03 June. We are not required to build the brazier or fill it, simply help get the kit as far up as we can. If we fall short of the summit, the TA will manhandle it the rest of the way.

Opinions vary from easy peasy to impossible, but knowing the calibre of men you are I don't think we will be beaten by a challenge like this. What a bout a sledge type thingy and a snatch block up top and winch from down below? I think someone mentioned an idea of Roberts that something like an old car bonnet to make use of would be a good idea. Would certainly like to get a few promotional pics of a LR on top, but at least of us assisting.

Those willing to assist if you could put your name forward, I can get a team together......
