Following our successful Community Share Issue, a lot of effort has been going in to getting ready for the builders – who should have started by the time you read this!
As you’ll see next time you visit, the meeting room has closed until next year, our main entrance has moved around the corner to Shaw’s Passage and the old reception has been filled with the Warehouse Café’s refrigeration equipment. Behind the scenes we have been busy emptying the middle bay area, archiving old records and have had much-needed repairs carried out to the main warehouse roof.
The first jobs that the builders will be tackling are the creation of a new entrance and staircase from Allison Street to the first floor, repairing one of the roof timbers above the the offices and creating toilet facilities with a mezzanine storage area above them. Once this has been done we can start on the exciting project to create new spaces for Natural Healthy Foods and the Warehouse Café downstairs.
Over the past couple of months we have been very glad of the help provided our by Assistant General Managers John Newson and Mark Hawkins who provided temporary staff cover during the recruitment of an Administration & Finance Officer and we are delighted to have appointed Nasreen to fill this position over the coming year.
We know that there will be some disruption during the building works and thank you all in advance for your patience! Regular updates will be being posted on-line and in the next few issues of the newsletter.
