The work on the Battery at Lamer Island is progressing well. The improved access, seating for the Amphitheatre and preparations for the installation of Public Artwork by the renowned Scottish artist Donald Urquhart are all moving toward completion.
Casualty Review Panel statistics from 2007 – 2013 show that 148 lives may have been saved by wearing a lifejacket or buoyancy aid. Wearing a lifejacket can increase your chances of survival by up to four times when immersed in cold water. Wearing a well fitted and suitable lifejacket or buoyancy aid, could save your life. In addition you should carry a means of raising an alarm, know how to call for help, check weather conditions & tides before going to sea
A G Thomson has cleared the area that is to be used for the Interpretation Hub on the Battery and archaeologists have recorded the original flagstones that formed part of the old fumigation room at the hospital.
The vaults behind have been opened up (and closed again for the time being) but two of the three rooms are in relatively good condition with their old fire-places.
The main contractor, Graeme Brown, is already well under way with the consolidation repairs to the walls. This is a dangerous building site and is to be avoided by the public while work is on-going.
