What’s Cooking in the Central Lodge

I had just had to mention what a wonderful post by Chris!  It gives a lovely insight into her role and how we all feel about our roles in Stewart Park.

What’s been happening in the Central Lodge?  It’s seems to be getting very busy.  The contractors found an old range hidden behind boards over a fireplace. It’s a bit battered but still there. It kind of reminds me of the building, battered but still standing.

The work on renovating the Central Lodge is gathering pace and spaces are being uncovered and reworked. It’s exciting and strange at the same time. It feels like it’s being pared back and it is giving up some of its past with the finding of the range, the bottle and newspaper, some old lino and a boxing flyer.  I guess it’s like looking down the back of your sofa!  Rather a strange sofa, but intriguing any way!

I can’t wait to see how the building looks when it’s finished and to hear voices and see people using the spaces.  I think the building will be a fantastic facility and it would meet with past tenants’ approval.
