Update for the 26th June, 2020

The Coach House

Work has continued to progress quickly this week. Much of the upper floor of The Coach House has been stripped back in order to rebuild a safer structure. The brickies have already re-built the outer perimeter wall and made swift progress on the walls of the top floor. Steels have been installed at the back of the ground floor with guidance from our structural engineer and architect. This, along with a steel ridge beam, will create a firm framework for the entire structure.

Weekday Warriors

This week has seen the return of some of our Weekday Warriors seizing an opportunity in this warm weather to give The Stables a lick of paint ready for when The Swan will reopen.

There is opportunity now to have a select number of volunteers back in to chip away at the list of jobs that can be carried out at the moment safely whilst observing social distancing. With a lot to achieve in the coming week volunteers are needed.

At the end of the week ...

A lot of progress this week, and a lot to do next week before re-opening.
