Fundraising starts

…. with a huge success! We are using Spacehive as our fundraising site & have also been grant aided by Experian through a bid made in early January. Pledges are rolling in – please check out the latest total and make your pledge HERE. Deadline is April 30th and if we don’t reach our target of £10,955 by then we will not get ANY of the money currently pledged, so please help with a donation, it could be as small as £10.

Testing the projector

We decided to repair the light projector in time for the December Super Market. Although this is just a small part of the overall project it was important to show the potential and we were thrilled to have the Mayor switch on the lights when the town’s Xmas lights were also switched on. There are around seven broken blocks and these will be replaced by Helga when funding allows. The stone wall also requires repointing before the lit blocks return as an evening attraction to the town centre.
