But before that, our usual weekly update on progress at OBY. The electricians are continuing their work, with lots of wire, plug sockets, & light fittings etc. going into the units. Darren & Dom, have been working in the recent hot weather, and are doing a first class job.
We have some news on the doors & windows. The big doors to the workshop, that you see when you enter the yard are ready for fixing, and Steve & his team will be returning 'on-site' from next week after their holidays, and work will pick up again, with locks being fitted to doors, door frames being 'siliconed' into their final place, and a painter with a big tin of Bay Green paint, starting to wield his brush.
So, after a bit of a lull, we seem to be picking up the pace again, and moving toward that day when we can say - "It's all done!!"
Now, about that Christmas news! We had already told you in an earlier blog post that we would be having Creswell Colliery Brass Band joining us in the Yard on December 1st - the day of Bolsover Christmas Festival & Lantern Parade. And we had hinted last week at news of a Christmas Craft Fayre. Well at the end of this post, you will see more information about the event. As well as the Band, and (hopefully) our resident tenants, we will have six other craft stalls, showing off the work of local crafts businesses. They will all be different crafts, and be drawn from the local area. Booking forms can be obtained from this Friday - 10th August, and the closing date for booking applications is September 30th.
Other than that it has been fairly quiet really!!
Until next week then!
