Yipee!!! our 'Old lady' has been officially handed over to the contractors who will be carrying out the rewiring work.
They seem like nice people, hope they will be gentle with her.
Unfortunately it's looking like our February open days will need to be cancelled as well as the January one, we will keep you up to date with progress.
There will be no rest for us though as we have to pack everything up and shift it out so that the work can take place and then we will have to wash everything, clean, decorate, sand floors and restore order once the contracors move out.
If anyone has a few hours spare in the New Year and would like to help out we would love to hear from you. Either private message Clayton Hall on Facebook or email email@example.com.
Thank you once again for your continued support throughout 2016. See you in the New Year. xx
