Just read this at another blog regarding Dickens chalet...

Hoping Dickens lovers from across the pond can help as well.

Thanks for the link. Hopefully, they'll be able to raise enough money to restore it through Dickens-related events. I wondered why it was closed off to the public when the Dickens Centre used to be there.

Hi again. I just posted this link on Random Jottings http://www.rochesterpeople.co.uk/sport/Dickens-Chalet-Need-Restoration/article-1878293-detail/article.html

so it looks as though they are trying to get global assistance. There is an address at the bottom for the Chalet Fund. I'll place details on here soon for anyone who's interested.

It will be a wonderful thing and even better that the chalet will be open for visitors. Thanks for the link.
