Why were all the desks outside?

Posted by Picasa
And here is an altogether mystifying tableau from Dr Phillpotts's album for 1983. The troops all seemed quite cheerful, left to right, ?, ?, Jane Fitt, Julie Fissenden, Ros Cleal, Dave Southwood and Nick Snashall. I'm inclined to think that this photograph was taken on a Thursday morning, based on the fact that nobody is wearing their digging clothes and considering the angle of the shadows. But I cannot account for the multitude of desks sitting outside behind them. Can anyone remember? I assume that the little bags attached to the line with clothes pegs contain Frank Green's soil samples.
