Fantastic news from Claudia

Back in September, it became very obvious that with all the Social Distancing regulations still in place (and looking like they were here to stay for the foreseeable future,) that the winter was going to be a problem.

How are we to shelter our wonderful Volunteer Teams throughout the cold, wet months of the winter and early spring? The workshop/toolstore is no longer a viable option. It was always cramped at best, but now with social distancing its an absolute impossibility!

So I got my thinking cap on and did a little searching.

The National Lottery Community Fund has a grant for up to £10000 to help community projects weather and recover from the Coronavirus epidemic. It seemed too good to be true!

So we did a bit more thinking about what we really needed, how much it would cost and applied for £7450 to convert the Toolshed into a Volunteer Hub where the volunteers can safely shelter from the rain as it passes over us and eat their lunch in the warm and the dry. We also asked for a bit to make a safe access route to and from the Greenhouse and the New Toolshed.

All our dreams have come true and we are now all so excited to see the ork progress
