ASSESS DAMAGE131bCiprian Dascalescu20/01/2023JWWalked site with Ciprian and assessed damage. Most of the damage is to his main shed on plot 130b.
134bSmilja Vincic21/01/2023MWPhoned to inform Smelja that her shed is completely destroyed as it was directly adjacent to the shed on 130b. Her plastic rain tank and composting bin were also half melted.
In fact she had already spoken to Ciprian who had told her by phone what had happened but she was glad to talk to someone from the Committee and intends to visit the site herself this weekend. I said we would help her with clear up but needed to confirm when this should be done in case any toxicity.
23/01/2023JMVisit Smelja to discuss the events in person. Emphasised that nothing should be touched until we have clear guidelines from expert contractors/fire brigade, because there are toxins in the area.

129bChris Rumble21/01/2023JMSpoke to Chris who visited the site to inspect the damage once he’d seen the email.
His greenhouse was completely destroyed, and his shed singed, with window panes blown out.
He expressed his concern that Ciprian had been allowed to build such a large shed, and store inappropriate items in it, whereas another nearby plot-holders had been told to halt expansion of his shed. 
22/01/2023JWSpoke to Chris who visited the site to take another look.
