It looks like the spirits are having a good look round in preparation for the ghost hunt tomorrow. Friday 22 April at 9pm. We wonder if anyone knows who they are?
We are so lucky to have such a great team of fantastic volunteers. Five of them went in today to start the deep clean operation. They have done us proud on the ground floor and will be tackling the first floor on Thursday. We thanks these lovely women from the bottom of our hearts.
Here are a couple of before and after shots to highlight just how good a job these ladies have done.
Keep checking in to this blog to stay up to date with progress. Thanks.
It was just over a week ago (Sat 2nd April) that Esther started the photographic documentation of the library renovation. We went in before any clean-up work and the building was in a very sorry state. There were mushrooms growing from the carpet, the parquet floor had risen in many places from the damp and pigeon mess was coating most surfaces. We probably do not have to go into much detail about the smell!
Then the team (of 2 men) went in to make the building safe and clear away debris. What a transformation in such a short time.
Today (Mon 11th April) the exterior was treated to a good wash and Esther took more pictures. We can only post the pictures we took with our iPad but when Esther uploads hers we will post them for you to see.
We have a week and 3 days to get it to the point where we can safely let the public in on Friday 22nd April. It is extremely important to us that the doors get opened so that people who have been fighting to save this wonderful building can finally access it again.
