News from Hay Cheese Market We are how half way through delivering the community activities side of the project. We have worked on some fantastic activities with local groups including the Hay Festival Scribblers, Hay Youth Club, Llanigon Young Farmers Club and all the pupils at Hay Primary School. There is lots more exciting work to come, including designing a series of historical walks around Hay and writing copy and sourcing pictures about the history of the building to put on the information display panels that will be hung inside the old Market Hall. Meanwhile, plans are well underway for the first Hay History Weekend this September, 7th-8th. The programme, being put together by members of Hay History Group, includes

a family history quiz about Hay, film screenings, a pop up museum and guided historical walks. On the building side of the project, structural repair work is due to begin this autumn. The building tender contract will be organised via Hook Masons Architects in Hereford. Any building companies interested in submitting a tender should contact Hook Masons before end July.
