External work of new HQ almost complete

If you have been past our headquarters site on Constance Street you may have noticed that, from the outside at least, the building looks virtually finished.
The final work to drainage and landscaping are being completed, and the rendering around the front gable is finished, creating a stunning entrance.
For leaders it is another step closer, but we still have a long way to go, as we have not started on the inside yet. Work is ongoing designing the electrics and heating, and we have had offers of free labour to do the work. However, we still need around £40,000 to complete the building, which is a relatively small amount compared to what we have raised so far!
