With the help of a grant from the National Lottery before Christmas of £9,250 and also £4,500 from district councillors Anthony Casson, Rodney Grocock and Andrew Woolf, we were able to go ahead with our plan to repair and replace rotten wooden window frames in both buildings with UPVC units. We have only been able to do this with the windows at the side and rear of the buildings as we are in a conservation area; the remaining windows at the front will be repaired in due course.
Committee member Barry Sherwood is pictured with staff members from New View Windows of Kings Lynn, who have done a brilliant job in just a week! Take a look at the before and after pictures below!
The project has taken several months to put together, when it became clear last year that some of the wooden window frames were beyond repair. Barry has overseen the project from the beginning, assisting with the application to the National Lottery Fund, obtaining quotes and liaising with contractors. All this has been done on a voluntary basis - if you would like to join us in helping to maintain these historic buildings, we'd love to hear from you!
