Friends of Sandfields – can you help?


This wonderful building – and the remarkable engine still within – could be lost forever.

The campaign to save Sandfields Pumping Station in Lichfield for the community continues apace. Local historian and activist Dave Moore has been putting heart and soul into this for ages now, and he’d like as many people as possible to get involved.

The next meeting of the Friends of Sandfields Pumping Station will be taking place this Friday evening (30th May 2014) at 7:30pm, at the Curborough Community Centre  in Lichfield.

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

I have arranged a meeting on Friday 30th May 2014 at 7:30pm so we can further discuss our progress so far, and how we can together save this magnificent building and the Cornish beam engine it contains for the benefit of the wider community.

The meeting will take place at:
