Our Redevelopment through the eyes of the Organ Supplier and QS

If you want to hear the organ and to look at the redevelopment then check out this blog on the Viscount Organs website. 

Also look at the website of our Quantity Surveyor who has placed our redevelopment as a case study.


The Schoolroom has a new floor covering. This makes cleanliness, hygiene and maintenance in these difficult times easier to achieve. Thank you to the Horace Taylor Trust for their generous grant for this project. Also, many thanks to the few volunteers who not only organised this significant improvement, but who contributed through joinery, fitting, clearing, cleaning, and finally polishing!

Open Weekend 28/29 August 2021

An excellent weekend open to all to share our new building. We had visitors from all over the country, and their interest and support was inspirational. Here are some pictures of activities:

Garden

The garden was really appreciated on a day we were blessed with good weather.







Event1There were plenty of activities such as the Craft Table, shown here. There was a loop PowerPoint showing the rebuild through time with poems by members, and a film - Genesis to Bio-diversity. 





Food

 The catering throughout was outstanding!










BandsPerformances by Manfire Music Jazz Band,  Middle 8, and Driffield Ukulele Band.  Throughout the visitors could enjoy a Labyrinth, and a series of thoughtful spaces for quiet contemplation. The common jigsaw was particularly appreciated!
