Lifted out for repairs
The recent high winds had caused the duck house on the pond by Post Office Terrace to capsize as one of its mooring lines had become detached. This morning the operation took place to turn it up the right way once more.
The job was made more difficult as the structure was surrounded by thick ice. Eventually the house was freed and lifted out on to the bank. A quick examination showed that a few repairs are needed so it was placed in 'dry dock' until this can be done.
A big hole in the ice was all that was left as a reminder of a good morning's work.
