It's been highly publicized then?
Recently. Yes. I wouldn't think that it had much
penetration until recently, would you?
Well, of course, with this recent conference, that will
heighten the interest in it. But these visitors are what?
No, they're largely -- they're British, and tourists
from all over.
And they pay to --?
And they pay. They par around a pound.
So that helps with the upkeep?
That helps with the maintenance. But they've also
had a number of conferences, and that's meant that they have
to enlarge their kitchens and have facilities that are
different from what were already there. They have a number
of things that they want to do, and they're trying to raise
money, as you probably know. It is a charitable trust.
Did you say they could really only accommodate about
twenty people at a conference?
That's right. About twenty. Well, now they have
some additional space that they used and decorated recently,
but I don't think it's more than another six or eight rooms.
They've just recently done this.
