The builders have been busy and the steel bracing is now in place to ensure our building is as solid as it can be. They did discover that the foundations were actually in good condition despite the age of the building (1913) so that was good to know. The building work is now complete and so begins the next phase - cleaning (lots of dust!), decorating, unpacking artefacts and respositioning displays.
