Refurbishment of the back room is continuing and will hopefully be completed in the not-too distant
future. It promises to be a very pleasant space.
As well as an extra meeting room (non-smoking) we plan to use it for Saturday dinners and as a socialist and trade union resource room.
Since our last newsletter we’ve installed metal gates on both front and rear entrances to the yard.
We’ve also barred accessible windows. It’s a sad state of affairs but necessary because of constant break-ins. Touch wood it seems to be working well.
Many thanks to all those who have contributed to the improvements.
