Update for the 2nd August
With the pub being closed for a couple of days earlier in the week allowed us to doing the plastering above the bar and the surrounding pillars. A lot of square metres and very awkward corners to be covered. At the same time, we opened up the new side door and got that in place; it just needs finished off. A new guttering was added in front of the doors to prevent the bar flooding.
The windows to the front were completed and painted. All that is left to do is to add the "frosting" to make them blend in with the rest. Chris, the specialist electrician, spent a lot of time connected up the new mains in the stable - we are getting closer to having real power to the pub!
And the kitchen ceiling was pulled down too, chairs painted, the stone at painted by our youngest volunteers yet, wires and windows stripped, and much more too. It's difficult to cover it all here.
