Does anyone know how long the scaff on the town hall is going to be there for? It must have been up for a year or so already I think.

It only seems that way - it went up in the middle of December as a safety feature as tiles were dropping into the street. This week the job to re-roof started - it had to wait for planning permission according to the Receptionist. assembly Rooms and Corn exchange both being done - a few weeks to complete
