Firstly, thanks to those of you who sent me messages following my fall last week. The final result is that I have damaged the schaphoid bone in my left wrist & have got a splint on the wrist & have to go back to the fracture clinic on Friday.
The bang on the head has healed, though, sadly, it does not seem to have knocked any more sense in to me!!
So back to Old Bolsover Yard & progress. We are very near to completion, and if it hadn't been for the five windows that had been made the wrong size, which has held up the painter, and putting the final touches to the door furniture (posh name for door handles, locks etc.!) we might be all done.
Certainly things look much more 'spic & span' then when we first entered the Yard in April.
Our Heritage Lottery Fund bid is still being developed, and we are in the process of collecting 'Letters of Support' from local organisations. At a recent meeting with the HLF team we were joined by two people from times past, who had popped in to lend their support!!
Last Saturday we went to the Tapton Lock Festival & met several people who are interested in taking part in the Programme, and this weekend we are off to the Derbyshire Woodland Festival at Elvaston Castle to hopefully interest more people.
Just as soon as we have signed off on the building work, we will be able to get the Valuer in to help with rental costs etc. & then be able to contact those of you who have expressed an interest in renting space. Sorry if you think we have forgotten about you, but 'we haven't', it is just that we have not had anything positive to tell you
So, I will leave you with a couple of photos of part of the 'new look' Old Bolsover Yard.
Until next week ....
