INGESTRE ORANGERY UPDATE

Following the Friends of Ingestre Orangery's (FOIO) successful application to the Heritage Lottery Fund earlier in the  year, permission to start has now been granted and the chosen conservation building contractors, H.A. Briddon Ltd, from Derbyshire, began their work on July 16th, They have got the temporary roads down, which are needed to access the site before the restoration work can begin and will allow the installation of 2 cabins for their ongoing work to restore the Orangery and construct a new build to the rear of the building.

The date for the completion of the works is 22nd April 2019; there will then be time for fit out and hand over. Although the FOIO have been successful in achieving the majority of the match funding required to supplement the HLF grant, there is still a shortfall which FOIO hope to achieve through the continued support of the community. Please keep an eye out for future fundraising events and initiatives over the coming weeks,
