Hall painting

After a thorough clean, paint preparation and extra waterproofing sealant, the hall’s external walls are now being repainted with an external wood stain

 

A new pathway

.A 1.2 m wide cement path will be extended around half of the hall, going from the disabled parking area to the main stairs and around to the front entrance.  The  south side of the  hall has heavy foot traffic and receives little sunlight leaving bare ground.

Fairy lights

A more robust fairy light system is being introduced to replace, as sections fail, the existing domestic wiring

.

A future project

There is need to control via a concrete drain the amount water that gets banked up under the side of the hall because of the raised water tank stands.  The drain will run from the gas bottles to the front of the hall and be diverted to one side

 

.

This will help keep the underneath of the hall dry which will reduce the risk of white ants who have been discovered in timber placed on the ground between the building and the tanks

Psittacine beak and feather disease (PBFD) 

A white cockatoo affected by PBFD
.
Psittacine circoviral disease (PCD) affects parrots and related species and is often fatal to birds that contract it. The virus that causes the disease has been identified from many wild populations and is believed to occur naturally. However, where bird populations are low, the disease may have the potential to cause catastrophic losses. PCD has caused a number of deaths of threatened parrots in captive breeding programs.
