Progress Report

Since our last newsletter, we have:

  • Made many applications for funding
  • Written a full business plan
  • Formulated an Equal Opportunity Policy
  • Applied to local firms seeking people to be seconded to assist the development of our project.

Petition Results

As most of you know, we organised a petition and the results show that there is genuine local support for the project.
We are delighted to report that 229 people signed.  Thank you one and all!
If you'd like to get more signatures, ask us for additional forms or pick one off our website at


We have, of course, applied for funding to the National Lottery as well as numerous smaller charitable trusts and other sources.
Now, a challenge to our readers…

How do I Get Involved?

If you want to help….
….In particular, if you have skills in fundraising or accountancy, we'd love to hear from you.
But, no matter what you can contribute, please get in touch with us.
