Restoration of fire-damaged flat at Thoresby College almost complete
In December 2018, a small, localised fire caused significant damage to one of the flats on the Queen Street elevation of Thoresby College. Luckily the building was evacuated quickly and efficiently, and all tenants were kept safe. The flat however was not so lucky, despite the exceptionally fast response of the local Fire Department. Work on restoration began in Autumn 2019, and is now approaching completion. Works have been carried out by Smith Building Services Ltd., to a very high standard. It is hoped that the remaining works to the stonework and sash windows on Queen Street will be completed later this year.
