The Fog Bell - update

Pupils from Stanley High tidying up the area around the Fog Bell

The renovation of the Marshside Fog Bell is now well under way.

The building is now owned by ‘One Vision Housing’ which took over the former Council houses some time ago. They are fully supportive of our intentions to make the building an information and educational centre. They have agreed, and have started, to repair the exterior of the building.

Several students from Stanley High Sports College who are taking their Duke of Edinburgh Bronze Award spent a day weeding, cutting hedges and tidying up the area removing 16 bags of rubbish. They have also sanded and varnished the benches.

Early next year pupils from Marshside Primary School will be designing, making and fixing mosaic panels at the back of the seats. These panels will depict local history scenes.

The bare patch which was once planted with shrubs will be turned into a pebble pavement.
