We are excited that the work on refurbishing the lobby is due to begin on 5th August. We are determined that the project will cost no more than the legacy of £10,000 which is funding the work so have adjusted our plans accordingly. The refurbishment will involve decorating inside and out, laying a new floor, refurbishing the lighting and providing some new furniture. We hope that this will enable us to meet the brief of improving the lobby so that it provides a warm, modern and friendly welcome to all who come into our building.
In addition to the refurbishment, we are taking the opportunity to fit power assisted door openers to the main entrance and upgrade the accessible loo. This work is being funded by the capital fund which will also pay for the footpaths to be renewed. The work on the external footpaths is in hand and we are in the process of applying for the necessary permissions for this.
The work on the lobby is expected to last through August but be finished in time for a wedding on 31st August. There will be access to the loos on Sundays but otherwise access is very restricted to enable the builders to complete the work as efficiently as possible. Please speak to Lesley or Rebecca if you need access to the lobby during August.
