midford - ready for take off!
The momentous moment when the restoration of the entire S&D begins will be this Wednesday 15 September 2010.
Characteristically low-key it will mainly involve me, plus anyone else who wants to come along, pinning up a couple of notices and cutting back a bit of undergrowth. It will also allow us to get a feel for what's needed to put the buildings back, which will proceed as soon as we get planning permission.
I'll be arriving at around 2pm and stay until 5.
Of course this isn't the first time work has started at an S&D site, but it is the first time that it has been part of a full line revival, which does mark it out as momentous.
So do try to come along, even if not currently a member. I'll have membership forms and some sales items available on the day.
