The final stretch
This morning the painters and decorators began to put the final touches on the inside of the hall. The floor is being laid later this week and work has begun on the final render that will complete the external work. All is looking good then for the projected finish on the 12th June … or thereabouts!
The head builder’s ears must have been burning over the weekend as I was singing his praises (and of all the team) to Monsignor John Armitage, who is now the new rector in Walsingham. The head builder, David, is known to him personally and he was therefore unsurprised at how happy we are. “David is the very best” he said. High praise indeed. It turns out that the two have known each other since school days and that David is a devout Catholic.
