Development Committee and grants

If anyone would like to come onto the development committee, please let Richard know. We have received £500 grant and with this we have purchased 3 toppers for the cadets. This will also help to underpin our scholarship scheme with local schools. The £5000 Capital Grant for the accessible toilet has just been received so work can begin once the detailed drawings have been agreed by the development committee.


We are tackling the backlog on invoice reconciliation so please be patient if you're still getting an unpaid invoice message when you log in to your portal on the website.
