So here's a glimpse behind the scenes at some of those essential spaces that our staff and volunteers use in the course of their work. We thought it might be useful to have a yardstick by which to judge the spaces, so for our first candidate, the Hill Top Shop Office, we can tell you it is just over 2 'Peters' wide...(see below)

Next comes the Hill Top Property Office, located in half a small barn borrowed from next door's farmer, luckily the animals moved out first....an estimate here would be 8 'Peters' wide. Whenever there is a meeting in here people have to swap seats to let anyone in or out of the door and if you're last in you get the small camping stool which puts you at the level of others' elbows....

So the next time you visit your own broom cupboard or smallest room you might spare a thought for our hard-working team members beavering away in something similar!
