Funds pledged now tops £101,000!
On the 9th May FOSB had the pleasure to meet up with 5 of our local councillors, and several of our supporters at the bandstand and presented a cheque to the Town Mayor to the value of £50,000, and with council pledge of £50,000 gives us a total of £100,000. Since then our new total is £101,776.19p. It was a warm and friendly meeting of people who all want to see our bandstand restored, which is very exiting. We now know that it won't be up for Christmas as we had hoped, but fully expect it to be back up by Easter next year, unless we have a setback. The town has been fantastic, the town council have also been great, but we still must stay focused, we still need more funds. The specification for the work is still to be finalised, but then we go out for tender, and when estimates come in we can then apply for Heritage, Lottery funding.
