Studio in the river - Open for Business following the flood

Studio in the river!

07 February 2004

Our furnace is cold and our studio is wet -

We will start the cleanup process on Monday morning when we hope to relight the furnace, once the furnace fan has been rewired and rebuilt – water and electrics don’t mix well!

Having just completer a very successful Spring Fair at the NEC we now have a full order book and no studio to make our orders in – but we will soon be back up and running making up all the time lost somehow…

The levels peaked at around 10-12 inches of water throughout our studio and showroom – but looking on the bright side in October 2000 it peaked at 39 inches!!!

The river continues to rush past our back yard wall at break neck speed.
