We have been very lucky to receive donations of tools and equipment from many local people. It means we are well set up for most of what we need in our workshop, when the Covid restrictions allow us to use the shed again. Thanks to everyone for their support.
We would expect to be welcoming members to meet, chat, drink tea and use the workshop if they want to, but Covid restrictions are stopping that of course. The problem is that the running costs are still there, but we have no subs coming in to pay the bills.
We have received some grants for jobs like mending the roof and fixing the heating, which were very welcome and useful, but this so-called restricted funding (we are restricted as to what we spend the money on) is not for general running costs. We have bills to pay for gas, electricity, water, rates ground rent and so on. Members’ subs will cover this when all is normal, but at the moment we need to find a way to cover this.
To help out we are asking people if they can spare us some money to help keep things going. We have created a Just Giving page where people can give some money. If you can help please check the link below.
