Renovations Diary: 6th December, 2019
It's been a very busy couple of weeks for the volunteers and our business sponsors.
The main office has had a lot of work done to it: now insulated and plumbing work sorted out too so that we can fireboard and plaster it by the end of this week. Security is all connected up and now running too. So the bar team will be able to fully move in next week!
With a local resident's support, Evolution Roofing has been coming in to make The Stables water tight (and evict the pigeons too!). A huge thanks as this really supports our Winter Fayre activities.
One of our chimneys has now been reduced in height for safety reasons. Peter our professional builder and his staff undertook this work for us as it was outside the capabilities of the volunteers.
Finally the roof on the covered area has been repaired with new corrugated metal. This will allow the Winter Fayre to use this area without fear of getting damp!.
