Funds pledged now tops £49,000!
Latest news of progress by F.O.S.B. We now have pledges and donations up to £49,000 with another £50,000 from the town council, with £37,000 already banked, and feel confident that we will get the rest in as everyone has been so supportive of our campaign. Various groups have, and are continuing to raise funds for us as we still have a long way to go. The Town Council has had a report done on the condition of what is still standing, and it shows that most of that can be refurbished and saved, which is good news. Next step will be full estimates for the work, then we apply for help from Groups like Heritage, Lottery, Funding. We still need more prizes please for our Raffle that's to be drawn on Easter Monday. Another thing that's being done is Jam Jars at home to save your 20p coins for placing around the Bandstand, date to be announced. We are also asking you to donate small items to us as we are having a sale to add funds to the appeal, date and place to be announced. We are also asking for more donations please if anyone has a bit of spare cash. If you can help us please contact Alan Houghton.
