Were you disappointed you didn't get involved in the recent DIY SOS project on the island well now is your chance to get involved in Iwade! After many months (years) the Iwade barn is ready for work to start on the internal alterations now that the Iwade@TheBarn trust has obtained Listed Building and Building Control consent. Local company Knauf has kindly said that they will donate materials and may also be able to help with labour but we are going to be reliant on other trades and expertise to complete the task ahead and get the barn ready for use. None of the trustees are professionals with this sort of project and if anyone is willing to help we would like to know. We already have a list of people who have come forward offering help and we’ll be contacting them at some point soon.
