Water tank update

The February Working Bee was very productive, with a good turn-out and some serious weeding being done. Our next big project is the research for obtaining a grant for a water tank- the biggest we can get!
Marijka, Ros and Chris have already started gathering some of the preliminary information but we'll all need to chip in. Here is an extract from Ros's latest email on the subject:

"We are going to need to get comprehensive quotes for labour and materials from 2 plumbers so am putting it out there does anyone have any plumbers they know or contacts ??? We also thought that at the next working bee on 2nd MARCH at 1.30 if we could get as many ideas from you all, as to what you think about what needs to be considered and the type of questions that we need to ask the plumber in order to get a comprehensive quote, I'm sure some of you already know the answers to some of these things eg where is the best place to put this tank or possibly do we need 2 seperate ones, what sort of bases do they need ,how high do they have to be, and a whole range of other things. So please come along and offer your expertise because this is a large project for us and we will all benefit from it, many hands make light work and it will take input from everyone to make this happen."
