The Committee are pleased to advise that Grants have been secured for the installation of the tarmac path but more monies still have to be raised. Because the SPFA is a registered charity and the field is owned by them unfortunately VAT has to be paid and consequently on a project like this the amount is quite substantial.
At the moment we are looking at specifications to find the best possible solution for price and access. One way of increasing the monies available would be for individuals to purchase a solar light at a cost of £25. These look like paviors and will be set into the path. It is anticipated that as a minimum we would need 70 of these. Consequently at present we are asking you to show if you are interested in supporting the scheme in this way.
Please let any member of the Committee know if you wish to make a ‘pledge’, and for how much. We would not be looking for monies until the work on the project takes place, hopefully, early next year. Also we are asking villagers to support the next batch of fund raising events.21st September 2014
