Laying the foundations…

The official start of our building project was marked on leap day (29 February), when Councillor Andrew Lewer, the Leader of Derbyshire County Council came to lay the foundations.  The ceremony was attended by the Strategic Director of Cultural and Community Services, Martin Molloy, and other representatives from the County Council, Wates (the main contractor for the project) and Scape, who are constructing the building framework.
