The only lift in Sleaford’s National Centre for Craft and Design is now operational again - after over two months out of action.

The lift at the NCCD provided access for the disabled and pushchairs to both galleries and workshops in the upper floors of the building, but the failure of a ket electrical component had rendered it out of service since August 11.

Engineers were expected last week but the part, which had to be re-manufactured in Italy due to the lift’s age, had not yet arrived.

The NCCD management have just Tweeted today (Thursday) that the lift has now been repaired and is fully operational, saying: “The lift is now fully operational, thank you for your patience while we made the necessary repairs.”

Faye Coulson, Tourism and Marketing Assistant for the NCCD added: “The team at the NCCD apologise for any inconvenience this may have caused their visitors and are very much looking forward to welcoming new and returning visitors very soon.

“The team would also like to thank the public for their patience and would like to reassure them that it is in full working order.”
