Progress with the Renovation - Update for the 27th September

We have had a very busy week.

First a big thank you goes to all our volunteers for this week. Without these people the pub would not be at the stage it is. We've even had visitors from America helping us out!

A big milestone has been the installation of our new sign hanging proudly where it belongs. Many thanks to Peter our builder, Warren the Scaffolder, and the team who installed this last Saturday.

Inside the pub we now have in place the new corrugated front, to our bar. Also we now have the new keg serving bridge in place, which is very smart indeed.

This week saw the external lights for the doorways been wired in and lit. Bas and Diana certainly did an excellent piece of restoration with them!

The school room is nearly completed. The guys from the Green Room are settling in nicely. As you can see, the desks and chairs can be set up in a variety of styles dependent upon the needs of the actual lesson - this is extremely important.

Site clearance is still going on and a massive push for this next coming week. We are trying to remove as much building materials and waste from the site as possible. This will improve the overall look and feel.
