Wanted (to borrow): Gazebo, mess tent or shelter

This is a big favour to ask (again). Is anyone able to lend me a gazebo, mess tent, or similar shelter for a few weeks?

We are hoping to get on with the Lancaster Hole repairs soon and the job will be a lot easier if we have some shelter from bad weather, so I was hoping to be able to borrow something we can put up over the entrance, with space for at least a few people to work and shelter.

We will be mixing concrete at the entrance and there will be the usual cave grime, so there's a good chance it will get dirty, but we would do our best to keep it clean. If anyone has an already-grubby shelter of some kind (maybe something from the winch meet?) that would be perfect.

Any offer would be gratefully received. I can pay in beer, donation to charity, or something like that.

Thanks for reading.



Is it possible to delete a thread when it's no longer needed?
It is but it's probably better to leave it and ask a Moderator to lock it (by clicking on the 'Report' link at the foot of the post) so that its history is preserved but no more replies can be posted. I'll do that now.
