On the 24th April 2007, Alison Breadon donated £500 to help us out with our leaky roof. It has taken us a long time to work out how to go about spending this money, but now we have a plan. Instead of going for a full replacement, we intend to give our existing roof a new lease of life that will last for another 10 years.
This is plenty of time for us to raise the funds necessary to switch to the most eco-roof money can buy. We have spent the £500 on repair materials and hope to have it fully patched in the next month or so.
This is being done in parallel to other amazing maintenance work including the repointing of our backwall, redecorating the building, and repairing the café roof. This is really the year for BIG maintenance projects at BfoE.
I will keep you updated on our progress over the next few months.
