The PBO has been born – It’s official – The first sod has been dug

Hi Folks,


It’s Official !!!! The PBO observatory has been born!!!

Heather and I had the Build Start meeting this morning with Tim Leonard the builder, Louise GLover (SDDC Project Manager) and Wayne Chesterman from the Forestry Centre.The build will be starting in the next 2 weeks

Heather started digging immediately and would have carried on until Tim told her he was going to use a JCB to level the site.

I think it was absolutely right that Heather dug the first sod, as she has been a major driving force in getting us to this stage. The view in the first photo is looking south, and the stick in the ground is the centre of the dome (just to the left od the clump of the trees

Exciting times ahead
