It is some years since I first made contact with Help the Hatters.
The group was well into its wholesale reconstruction of County's training facility at Manor Farm. ....truly and astonishingly turning a farm into a training facility really.
It was inspiring stuff to see supporters weighing in with jobs they would likely run a country mile away from doing on the home front. 




Skilled craftsmen donated skills willingly and for free, and those with little in the way of skills to offer did what they could. 



Help the Hatters knew long before Tesco that `every little helps!'
Fitzy eyed me up warily before assigning me to mowing the grass- thus limiting any potential hazards.



 In truthmy contributions over the coming weeks/months were minimal, but it was instructional to see the most excellent training facility emerge eventually where once stood a dilapidated farm house !
Little has changed over the years......the faces maybe to some degree , but the driving ethic remains intact...`Doers not…
