REPAIRS: The re-slating of the N. roof was completed by Couzens of Stamford. We now find that the S. and porch roof need renewing. which is significantly more expensive than the N. roof as Collyweston slates are expensive. We have money for these repairs but it will certainly mean we will be short when we finally get permission to have the water and toilet installed. So watch this space for fund raising activities.
