Projects

This page will provide the visitor with information about our Future, Current, and Past projects. If a project has not yet started but is planned, as agreed by the committee and/or the Head Warden, it will be categorised as a ‘Future’ project. Ongoing ‘Current’ projects will be updated as a project schedule as a news item/post (including progress information using other media) and will only become a “past’ project on completion.
