Car Park and Tarmac Project
With a project running from 25th October to 4th November 2021, our car park has had a massive upgrade. It was supported and organised by Tarmac Limited with discount rate groundworks by G N Groundworks of Telford who were magnificent. The final finished surface was done by Premier Surfacing. Excellent teamwork all round. The project was finished on time and the final result looks great.
Thank You Freemasons
A huge THANK YOU to the Freemasons from the Provincial Grand Lodge of Warwickshire for their generous donation towards the projects we hope to achieve. They have given us £1,000 for which we are extremely grateful.
