From strength to strength

Lucy Wood has been in touch to let me know about the sterling progress the Lichfield Scrap Barn’s shop at Chasewater Innovation Centre has been making. Lucy has put heart and should into making this very special community project succeed, and it’s something that I, and the wider local online community are fully supportive of.

Lucy sent the latest press release detailing half term activities for kids, offers and contact information such that you may help out if you’d like to.

This is a fine thing backed by the remarkable and wonderful Saxon Hill School in Lichfield. In the seemingly harsh and uncaring world we currently inhabit, it’s nice to see that these excellent people still give a damn.
