Due to the segregation of SVR full-time staff and volunteers to reduce the opportunity of the virus to cross from one to the other, volunteers have worked only on Sundays, so the Boiler shop has been locked. Today we were able to access it. Work has been going on to the rear of the firebox, with individual stay holes sized and marked accordingly. A start has been made on drilling the connecting flanges between inner and outer fireboxes around the fire hole with some temporary bolts fitted. The nuts and bolts surrounding the fire hole correctly set the distance apart of the two backplates.
