Working up to Christmas

Friday 31 Dec 2021

Work has continued through a dark December, often in cold and windy conditions. With temporary doors and plastic sheeting fitted to keep the weather out, most of the changes have been out of sight. Services are being installed with the underfloor heating system being much progressed. On the first floor crew room and facilities, a terracotta tiled floor has been added which will be heated by the ground-sourced heat pump system and uinderfloor pipework... a final floor covering will be placed over these tiles. Many of the interior walls are now visible though as yet lifts and final staircases are not in place.

The site has been tidied up and left looking smart for the Christmas break. Del's nursery in Fakenham kindly loaned a Christmas tree and we are grateful to Reside for making a stand and helping put it into position. The RNLI has also supplied a display Arancia-class lifeboat originally for the carol service but now doubling up as an added attraction over Christmas.
