A happy New Year to both our readers.
The next month will be hectic as we make ready for 30th January when the film crew return for the last time. Our aim is to have the place furnished and looking lived in by that date. Given the delays caused by the glacial planning system this will be a remarkable achievement. If the planning reforms can switch the emphasis from can't-do to can-do the economy may stand a chance of some recovery, in the building sector at least. A few more architectural heritage gems like ours might receive encouragement for their restoration.
Our very sincere thanks to everybody who has made all this possible.
