Renovations Diary: 26th July, 2019

It was the week after the opening. As everyone saw, we have a temporary bar and lots of work to do. A huge thanks to the Weekday Warriors who have completed the plaster-boarding throughout. On top of that, they managed to brick up the old entrance to the pub which is now part of the ladies toilet.

Marilyn, our Project Manager, has 'developed a relationship' with Crown Paints and once the colours have been tried and tested we will be able to let you know how you can donate a tin of paint for The Swan.

As you can see, there was a lot of work sorting out the furniture: repairing, sanding and painting. And we have help from volunteers of all ages. Luckily the weather was good so all that could be done outside in The Courtyard.
