Hopefully we will be back to normal (whatever the new “normal” is going to be) before too long.

To all our volunteers, clients and visitors - thank you for your patience and continued support, we really do miss you.


STAY SAFE -WASH HANDS - WEAR A MASK - DON’T TAKE RISKS

Back in early 2019 the trustees decided to explore the possibility of having the tarmac removed from the courtyard and side of the Heritage Centre.  We suspected that under the tarmac were the blue bricks of the original school playground.  We contacted Gro-Organic, a multiple award winning team who create social spaces and restorations.  They applied for lottery funding on our behalf and in early 2020 work commenced.  Our Chairman, John Burton, came in each week (whenever restrictions allowed) to photograph the ongoing work.

Covid-19 precautions caused a few problems as did some planning issues, but we overcame all obstacles and the results are the courtyards restored to their former glory.  We decided that the gates were due for replacement and we contacted local artist Alisha Miller (Alisha designed the Rotary Club’s George Eliot Bi-centenial Bench outside the Town Hall in Nuneaton) to design new gates for us.  We hope to have them in place before Christmas.
