It has now been formally confirmed that Hursts, the contractors on the Heart for Hathersage project have ceased trading. Their affairs are now under the control of the Administrator. Hathersage Parish Council is busy working with our design team and the Administrator to agree the best way to appoint a new contractor.

Unfortunately a delay to the completion of the project is now unavoidable, but we will do our best to keep this delay to a minimum.

As has previously been stated, absolutely no money has exchanged hands and the finances for this project remain fully intact.

This is a temporary setback and the project will be back on course as soon as we are able to appoint a new contractor.

We will keep the public informed by further notices such as this and also on the Parish Council website. In the meantime Hathersage Parish Council is taking steps to ensure the security and safety of the site.
