Work on the roof is getting on a treat with no major hiccups, plenty of rain about though, here are some more photos.
Just time to give you all an update as to the work we are having to carry out, as you can see from the photos we are having a large area of our roof removed so that the rafters & trusses along with the roof tiles can be looked at and strengthen & replaced where needed. This essential work is being carried out by local company Aspect Roofing Ltd , we have over the past 12 months been having some leaks coming through that existing roof area and following an examination it was found to be more serious that at first thought so this work had to brought forward on our building schedule and done as a matter of urgency, so as to stop any further leaks and damage being caused.
The work has been scheduled for about a 4 week period but as we all know with old buildings (we are, we believe 16th-17th century) until we start to uncover areas who knows what we may find, but fingers crossed 🤞 everything will be fine.
We can also see that some of our dedicated volunteers are carrying out some repairs to our chimney Brest to ensure we can keep our fires working through the up coming winter season and beyond well done to Peter Barnes for carrying out this work & to Paul Stewart for the photos.
This is our first weekend of trading with the renovations taking place and it is hoped that it will not impact on our trading, the only areas cordoned off is part of the garden area & the front area leading to the garden. Please be careful if you walk down the garden from our upper carpark. We will be open as usual during these works being carried out, we are now coming into our busy time with the run up to Christmas, we are having our usual Saturdays streetfood along with a couple of Saturday night is music nights plus there is also our Sunday lunches this weekend and a couple of weekends in December. We have quite a lot planned for December along with a couple of special nights, but more about that later. We are sure you will all understand our situation with this work being carried out and continue to support us as you alway have been. Any questions please don’t hesitate to contact us. Many Thanks from all off us here at The Fox Inn 🦊.
