Meantime – here is a fantastic short video of our Official Opening on 12 May 2017

Before you read any further let me show you a video taken by Tony Kettle, our architect and friend, who got a drone last week and used it for first time on Sunday! He got very lucky with the weather and the result is this stunning film footage!
Thanks Tony – we love it and believe so will everyone who watches it.
Since the day we got planning, it has been all go and last October(2015) we did the first ‘dig’ that signified start of building.
Enjoy this wee gallery of photos since building started and pop back from time to time to watch the progress!
Month by Month this year – made it easy by putting photos into albums by month.
