Buckminster Blog

Now that the National Centre project is actually happening there is of course lots going on.

The aim is to keep a running blog of activity as a way of keeping members up to date with the latest developments and overall progress.

The blogs will be fairly short and to the point and will be published on a monthly basis, hopefully these will give a feel for the project and an overview of progress.

The lease agreement was signed in November so I will use that as a starting point.
