Building Costs
In 1925 the new building cost about £1,200-00.
In 1975/76 the extension cost about £5,500.00.
Continued problems with the solid fuel heating system led to consideration in 1931 of an electric heating system. Such a system was not installed but in 1961 an oil-fired system was installed. This was replaced by gas heating when the new extension was built.
