NEWS. At the beginning of September we finally got permission to erect our afety Fencing which ,thanks to John Logan and Archie Purdie went up within 24 hours. The site had suffered badly from being closed for nearly three months , but thanks to the hard work of our volunteers was returned to good condition in time for the Open Doors weekend 15th and 16th September. While we lost out on both visitor numbers and
revenue during the weeks of closure the Open Weekend was a resounding success with 98 visitors taking tours over t he two afternoons and what an international group they were having come from , Australia, Netherlands, Italy, Germany Lebanon and New Zealand. The site is now looking clean and tidy ready for the approaching Winter,
A conservation Structural Engineer has visited to assess the boundary wall and we are awaiting his report.. The next weeks will see a variety of surveyors and assessors visit the site and in the mean time we are preparing bids for funding of the repairs. It will be a slow job but we are trying to remain positive about the outcome.
A VERY IMPORTANT DAIRY DATE
MONDAY 29th OCTOBER. Is the date for our AGM this year . It will be held in the Fergusson Room of the Church Hall Causewayhead at 7pm There have been a lot of changes during the past year with the resignation of some of the trustees and we have to look at the way forward for the group. The trustees have meet and have some interesting and exciting ideas about the way forward.We are anxious that the group should continue and that the site should not be left neglected and allowed to return to its earlier condition Some new volunteers have come along willing to take on new responsibilities for the group which is very encouraging. This AGM will be very important and we would encourage you to attend and hear about our new proposals and listen to any ideas or suggestions that you may like to put forward.
We look forward to seeing you there.
