Work starts on The Royal George

Work has started on the renovation and extension of The Royal George public house with heavy plant excavating and levelling the new parking area.

 

Heavy plant working on the new parking area of The Royal George,

 

The only downside has been that recent rain has caused mud to be deposited on the road between the site and the field in Spond Lane where the excess topsoil is being stored.  A road sweeper is being used to reduce danger and inconvenience caused by the mud.
