Field Hut work party and 85th birthday celebrations

6, 7, 8 Nov 2009

Five people went up to Field Hut for the work party and to celebrate its 85th birthday. The hut was full with 18 sleeping there Friday night. The inside of the hut was given a thorough spring clean. Other jobs completed included: cleaning, sanding and painting the downstairs sleeping platform and all the windows and architraves, restocking the wood shed and cleaning the guttering and water tank filters.

It was a busy weekend in the hills: over 60 people must have passed through Field during the weekend. Saturday night celebrated Field Hut's 85th birthday with a small cake, many of us reminiscing the 50th birthday with Nancy Stevenson's iced cake with edelweiss.
