The inside floor space is now completely defined. Inner block walls and insulation are rising with the external brick work. Tomorrow the scaffolding will go up.

ALL the men working on the project are local - mainly from Steyning, Upper Beeding or Small Dole. Most were born here and educated at local schools.
