Sunday 7th December

Its the last day of our two week Under Collective Construction ‘kick start event’. A lot has happened. We’re having a cook up and the weather is perfect. Like summer on ice.

Nigel gets the ‘found on the street, abandoned barbeque’ started for roasting chestnuts on charcoal…

…before working with Martin to construct a tent pole structure, in anticipation of that canvas we desperately need!

Its starting to feel like we are more able to host and serve:

tea-and-coffee

tea and coffee,

sunstove

vegetable stew on the sun stove,

mushrooms

veg skewers on the barbeque and

bonfire1

hot potatoes from the millstone bonfire

bar

washed down with a glass of something from the ‘bar’,

set-up

and with music emanating from the bicycle power station (Shaun made a ‘secure box’ for it today), relax in our ad hoc set up complete with palette platform and hand made table!

Passer by guests today, included Frank, Sonia and their well dressed lurcher.

and from more further afield, Man, Benjamin and Rob, cruised through the icy waters of the Lee Navigation

stopping at Enfield Lock

to join us for a sunset supper.

A chance for us all to reflect on the past two weeks and the issues raised, to discuss the theme of common land: past and present and to make future plans for Energy Cafe… there’s still a lot to do.
