LATEST NEWS :
We have at last started the foundations – the concrete has been laid and delivery and erection were scheduled for w/c 19th February.
If all has gone to plan there will be a Grand Opening Event on Saturday 17th March, with a BBQ ! at 1:00 pm
We have now got Planning permission for our final design. Progress with getting 3 quotes for the final design of the building is in hand – this is needed before we can realistically apply for major grants.
A very enjoyable quiz was held on 17th February, organised by Hilary Maynard and her team. Congratulations to Hilary whose monthly quizzes have raised £2,675.50 since starting in February 2016 – an average of well over £100.00 each month!
Total fund raising is now over £40,000.

The more "likes" we get, the stronger our position will be when applying for grants!
