Update by Joan Tatters

Good Morning,

Is it too late to say "Happy New Year"?

I know it's been a little while but our work has recently been inside the new building and to be honest, not very exciting.

The team have been progressing and due to one or two technical issues and the strange, intense weather we have pushed our anticipated finish date to May. Lets hope after Storm Dennis we can play a little catch up and hopefully bring that date forward.

Just to let you know next Tuesday (again weather permitting) we will be working in the school grounds and will be building a pond to encourage insects etc to visit hopefully adding another dimension to the childrens educational needs. We are constructing it during the holidays so it can be a surprise for the children on their return so ......."mums the word". I will let you know how Jason and his team get on!

Please feel free to ask me any questions you may have about the project, you can email me direct on .

This weather is challenging us all,  please stay safe folks!
