Renovations Diary: 1st March, 2019
As you can see below, as we touch the building we find more work. With the building being sealed up for over three years lying derelict, there is a lot of damp and rot that has affected the woodwork and plaster. We have started pulling back the bad bits, and seeing further unplanned issues.
We would like to really thank our immediate neighbours in Mill Lane. There was a lot of noise and a lot more dust than we expected. Also we have had several commercial vehicles making deliveries too. Many thanks for your continued patience and support during the refurbishment.
We have had some great support from the local business community. Some are offering their time free of charge or equipment at vastly reduced rates. To acknowledge this support, we have just started a recognition page on the website. It will be constantly updated as we get more and more support.
As an example, many of you will recognise Ian and Anthony Birch who have been working during the week. They have offered their skills and time free. There are others too. Paul the chimney sweep, and Jeff the plumber. Without them, we would have had to delay the last volunteer day.
