"Hi Iain. The only spaces I know that are available are sheds, situated under Hatfield House.  I used to have one there and there were many empty ones.  The rent is £2 per week.  Would one of those be any help to you?  "

'Work' in the Underground Garages

Does anybody know what is going on with the 'work' in the underground garages? It seems like it has been at the same stage for ages and I have not seen anybody working on it.I haven't received any communications from the COL regarding the the works and how it would impact the garage users, so I wondered if anybodt else knows how much longer it is meant to go on for.See More
