Normal Service Will be Resumed…very soon!

The Pause ButtonRenovation of our wonderful new offices at The Flat, 53 Broad Street in Lyme Regis has gone extremely well.

It has taken us a momentous six weeks of scrubbing, sweeping, prepping, rubbing down, painting and papering and we are just about to send out a stack of virtual, ‘We are moving’ notes.

With the help of a few dear friends, we have munched our way through over 10 metres of sandpaper, 4 litres of caulk, 90 litres of various flavours of paint, yards and yards of ceiling and wallpaper and we’ve barely set foot in the garden but have started to clear through the brambles and unloved footpaths.

On the backs of random pieces of scrap wallpaper you’ll find various designs for vertical fruit and vegetable planters made from pallets and raised beds made from scaffolding planks; it really will be a recycling dream garden.

To say we’re excited about the future of MO would be the understatement of the century.

We’re optimistically poised for good things to happen and have some incredible new titles in the pipeline including The Resilience Handbook by Elizabeth Walker and The Hound of Nashville by Gordon Strong to name but a few.

We apologise for the seeming radio silence at MO but rest assured, everything has been simmering away on the back burner (you’ve never seen such a large hob) and we are almost ready to serve supper.

Thank you for bearing with us as we get ready to bubble back into action!

The (slightly paint-encrusted) Team

PS: We will be having an official MO Re-Open Day on Saturday 27th June and hope you’ll join us for sustainable nibbles and drinks! Drop us a line if you’d like to be on the official guest list.

  1. Sounds amazing, I’m sure all the hard work will be worth it. (I’d also love to know more about the vertical fruit & veg planters.)

  2. Hi Linda – sorry for the sloooow response!

    We’re still getting straight and I am desperate to be out enjoying plotting and planning the garden…however, I do have a dear chum and landscape expert friend coming to dinner tomorrow…he’s bringing paper and pen…it will be a good evening!
