Pavilion Raising delayed until early Summer

13 April 2015

 

Pavilion Raising event on 1st May weekend has had to be pushed back until early summer. Working with Wikihouse designs has been a challenge and we need more time to get it right and involve people locally. Our apologies to anyone who will be inconvenienced by this decision. We've been on a steep learning curve and will feed our experience back into the Wikihouse commons process. Undeterred and Optimistic!
