Progress with the Renovation - Update for the 21st June
AN UPDATE FROM OUR PROJECT MANAGER
Hello everyone. The sun is shining as I am writing this on a make shift bench in The Swan yard.
Alan and Gerry our almost resident husband and wife team have made amazing progress with the exposed brick walls to the main pub and are now working on the men’s toilets. We have a specialist brick sealer that we need to apply when finished so this will be another job for one of our volunteers.
As well as our usual team of volunteers we had two new faces this week John Laing and John "Bosco" Ridge. They have done fantastic work doing a multitude of tasks from painting damp proof to the cellar to de-nailing.
Dermot was busy this week taking general rubbish down to the church as our lovely vicar has allowed us to use their bins. This of course all helps with skip costs.
Trevor one of our regulars has been doing some heavy duty work chasing out the floor for the plumbers who are back on site Monday. John is back doing his work in the school room.
The cellar is still work in progress and we have had a multitude of volunteers working on it this week. We've had to strip all walls back to the basic concrete and replaced the ceiling. Our resident builder Peter Keen has made new stairs.
Time is pressing now and we need your help more than ever even if it is just making tea for the volunteers. It’s dusty, dirty and fun! So please put on your overalls and a smile and pop down and see us. We are around in the morning so please turn up if you can.
