There are many positive pull factors for our relocation to the National Stone Centre but before we even knew that it was an option we had been looking for a place to move to. There are many, many problems with our current location but particularly with the building where we rent a space. Having been neglected for many years the building is literally falling apart around us. The signage in the image will be going up today – just as we are gearing up for a busy Christmas Holiday period – as bits of render are dropping from a height of 10-12m on to the pavement in front of our main doors. We already had a plan in place for any problem like this and as we have another entry point which does not have loose render above it we can use those doors instead. But, it is an unwelcome reminder of the risk our collection is under whilst we remain in the Pavilion building.
