This week’s Stunner

This week’s (31st Mar 2010) Ashbourne News Telegraph is available in the Sycamore or on-line.  Click on the image of the front page to access the paper on-line.

Recently the folks of Parwich, Alsop, Ballidon and Pikehall seem to have had a low profile in the news with the exception of the sports pages.  This week seems no exception:

Water compensation

Martin C writes:

On the back of the letter that we received from Severn Trent re. the water repairs on Saturday, there is a form for claiming compensation if they don’t restore services by the stated time.

Could we encourage people to claim, and then give the money to the people who were flooded? I know of at least two – they had turned taps on and forgotten about them, and then had floods during the night after the water was restored and overflowed the basins. (I suspect the water pressure is higher now than it was before.)

Again the builders have been working 7 days a week, with 6 guys in today.  This week has seen the completion of the main roof, which is fully tiled and has two solar panels on the rear.  The small structure in the middle of the roofline, when finished will be the ventilation system for the hall, and will be placed in situ by crane.

The carpenters have finished the floor for the high level storage above the hall, this area is designated for items such as scenery flats, costumes etc for future stage productions (calling all thespians, get your thinking caps on). 

The plasters have been prepping the hall ready for plastering this week.   Plumbing, electrical work and further insulation continues, as does the external pointing on the stonework.

Thanks to Ben & JF-S for the photos.
