After months of waiting, we are finally going to get an electricity meter installed in the shop area next week. ‘This is great news – we will need the power on for the builders, and when we use the shop for community events, such as the Michaelmas Fair on the 17th of September.’ says Jonathan, the Trust’s secretary.

In another development, the Trust has taken delivery of two reclaimed cast iron pillars, to be the centrepiece of a new Victorian shopfront, being constructed by local craftsman Anthony Jones, from Shropshire Hardwoods.
