Lottery Funding

We were delighted that our application for funding from the National Lottery was successful and in January 2010 we received the sum of £5,760 towards the cost of redecorating and refurbishing our HQ and store.

The roof of our garage and store, an old WWII air-raid shelter, was leaking badly, causing equipment to deteriorate and the grant has enabled us to have a new felt roof covering applied.

When our HQ building was erected in 1968, the light fittings were second-hand, so 42 years later, they had reached the end of their safe working life and we have now been able to renew them, providing a much improved standard of lighting in the main meeting hall.

Finally, we were able to have the interior of our HQ building redecorated throughout, making it a place we can once again be proud of!
