Old School - Restoration

Old School - Restoration

The Old School restoration project is due to commence shortly. The architect involved is currently working with North West Leicestershire's Conservation Officer on proposals for repairs to the Old School and is seeking to carry out some work to the school to ensure its longevity.Appeal: Please could I ask if anyone has any pictures/memories of the Old School, that they don't mind sharing, to send them through to me (clerk@breedonparishcouncil.org.uk). Once received I will share with the architect in order for him to add to his findings for restoration.
