All BV activities will continue at Queens Drive until the end of November. We’ll start moving materials etc. throughout the month & various people have kindly offered the use of vehicles & containers.
We should be in our new venue (Bank House, Leek) by December. We’ll explain where it is to anyone not familiar with the centre of Leek.

We expect to receive over £600 from the Co-op Community Fund very soon.
