Volunteer Vulcan polishers wanted
« on: April 28, 2011, 11:26:18 AM »
There is a chance that we will need some volunteer Vulcan cleaners for the week commencing the 23rd of May, probably the Wednesday to the Friday (25th to the 27th)

When 558 left Lyneham she was nice and shiny and clean but by then having put a few more miles and hours under her belt she will be in need of a quick wash and brush up before her first static display of the year.

We are hoping that she will be inside at Doncaster so that we can give some of the grubby bits the punters notice (the wheels, around the drains, behind the AAPP exhaust, etc.)  A bit of a wipe down and a polish so that she looks her best.

There may be a chance that the work may have to be carried out on the apron so any one who would like to come up to help will need to be in possession of either a two part driving licence or an up to date passport.

We will need about six willing helpers, the cleaning is all on the underside (no need to bring Knee pads) and we have three days so it should not be too stressful.

There will be access to the supply of Jaffa cakes and Tea and coffee will be supplied (we also know a very good little Cafe in the hangar where they do a great cooked dinner for under a fiver!)

If you would like to help out drop me a line (either PM or e-mail  sevans@vulcantothesky.org)

Please could you volunteer and I will confirm that this will be happening the week before the 23rd.

And replied to.

Looks like I'll have to start a list.

Nice to see so many people who want to help out.

I'll be in touch with those who have volunteered a bit nearer the time once we know the scheme can go ahead.

I'd love to volunteer for a go at this, but taking leave that week is a problem.  If you need an extra helper for a day then let me know and I'll see if can get a day towards the end of the week off :)

Would love too, but as you moved her from just down the road to bloody miles away it's a bit difficult (the caff sounds very reasonable though...I could be persuaded!)  :lol:

Well not withstanding the fact that 558 is now miles away from Lyneham, the goalposts have now moved and I need a hand this week the put a bit of a shine on 558 so she can impress some new friends.

I have been in touch with the folk who volunteered when this was first posted and have had a fair few pressed men (oops I meant volunteers)

I could do with a hand on Thursday if anyone is free (only Jangor coming at the moment, and I'm worried about the potential Jaffa cake consumption level).

Same drill as before a pm or an e-mail.

you will need either a valid passport or a 2 part diving licence to get into the hangar.

Thanks for listening.

Sam
