Before the fire.
Unfortunately earlier this month a fire took place in a building adjoining the Charity’s headquarters in Tisbury. This happened on the early morning of Tuesday 2 June 2020. Thankfully the property and their offices were unoccupied and no one was hurt, however both have suffered considerable damage – the full extent of which is still unknown.
The cause of the fire is under investigation and they’re working closely with the fire service and local agencies. While this is a major disruption, they are fortunate that through their COVID-19 contingency planning they are able to continue operations remotely and deliver online resources to provide as normal a service as possible.
The charity would like to extend their heartfelt thanks to Dorset and Wiltshire Fire and Rescue Service for their swift action in tackling the fire, and to their landlords the Fonthill Estate, as well as their neighbours Messums and The National Trust for their support.

We look forward to sharing further news when we know more. Let’s all hope that the damage can be fixed as swiftly as possible.
