Exciting news! The Parish Council heard last week that they have been successful in their application to Amey for a grant of £50,000 to transform Brewery Field into the magical place that the whole community can enjoy – now we have the promise of funding, we can really get going.
The deadline for completion of the project is end of April 2020 so it’s all systems go.
SCDC Planning have now discharged the conditions that DPC is required to meet prior to beginning work – we are now waiting for the approval for the works on the highway and then we will instruct the contractor to go ahead with the construction of the vehicle entrance so that work on the site can begin.
DPC has this month agreed to pay invoices for the Brewery Field works that Amey have offered to fund, as detailed in the Amey grant offer letter, on the condition that these will be repaid in full to DPC as soon as the Amey grant is made. We need to do this because although DPC has been successful in its application for £50,000, the grant is payable in arrears, only after work is complete.
Don’t forget our easyfundraising page, where you can raise free donations by shopping on line with over 3000 major retailers. Please consider using this for your on-line shopping – we could raise considerable funds this way.
With just a few people using it, we have already raised over £150 – imagine if everyone in the village used it for their online shopping how much money we could raise for e.g. some extra special woodcraft, sculpture, or art installations – your ideas are invited!
