  1. Good work by all thanks!
    The WordPress site looks good and works well.
    I thought the suggestion by Mark Learmonth good – particularly his suggestion that information boards could be attached to or within the vicinity of the bluestone building.

  2. Hi,
    Good work by all!
    I thought Mark Learmonth’s suggestion re the preservation of the bluestone building inside the gates good and also his suggestion that information boards could be attached to or in the vicinity of the bluestone building. It would give a focus for curious and interested visitors.
    cheers,
    Leonard Johnston
