Today, we’re sad to confirm that a fire took place in a building adjoining our Charity’s headquarters in Tisbury early this morning, Tuesday 2 June. Thankfully the property and our 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 we’re working closely with the fire service and local agencies. While this is a major disruption, we’re fortunate that through our COVID-19 contingency planning we’re able to continue operations remotely and deliver online resources to provide as normal a service as possible.
We’d like to extend our heartfelt thanks to Dorset and Wiltshire Fire and Rescue Service for their swift action in tackling the fire, and to our landlords Fonthill Estate, as well as our neighbours Messums and The National Trust for their support. We look forward to sharing further news when we know more.
