Another long-awaited success for the Trust...negotiations have been completed with the new landlords of the Peterborough Arms and a lease has been signed.
The Trust welcomes Brendan and Michelle Watkins, who have moved into the Peterborough Arms to prepare for opening in October.
We are looking forward to working with them and wish them every success.
The fantastic volunteer team led by Dave Maloney are working flat out to complete the agreed final stages of the internal restoration ready for the opening.
At the same time, with completion of the legal agreement for the change of access to Peterborough Farm, we are finally able to start the DLCC development and the lock side garden landscaping.
The Trustees thank the Executive and particularly Max Crofts and the Land Team, as well as Jock MacKenzie, for their detailed and patient work. Temporary buildings, in accordance with planning permission, have been commissioned and will be constructed on site in October.
