Next steps – Saving Sandfields meeting tonight!

Sandfields Pumping Station

This is a remarkable, severe but beautiful building, now almost marooned in a sea of new development. Image from Dave Moore’s Flickr photo stream.

Following the success of the inaugural meeting called to find a way to save Sandfields Pumping Station in Lichfield, historian and top chap Dave Moore tells me a second meeting is scheduled for tonight to officially set up The Friends of Sandfields Pumping Station group. Dave has been putting heart and soul into this for some months now, and he’d like as many people as possible to get involved.

Saving this wonderful building and the engine it contains for the community is imperative.

This meeting will be at Curborough Community Hall – note this is a different location to the first meeting. It takes place at 7:30pm tomorrow evening, (Friday 25th October 2013).

Do pop over to Dave Moore’s blog and check out the history of this almost forgotten gem.

The engine is wonderful. I saw it in 2001, and it really is a gem. Image from Dave Moore’s Flickr photo stream.
