What a fantastic early Christmas present. Our application to the Norfolk County Council Construction Fund has been successful. We have secured £100,000 worth of funding towards our project. We are over the moon – it means at long, long last our project has been acknowledged as a worthwhile one by the wider community.
A stipulation of the funding was that the project should be ‘shovel ready’ – well we had been for years and could be completed within the next year. We have a lot of work to do and still need quite a bit of funding, but with other funding applications to make and the Charity Shop going from strength to strength we are optimistic we can do it.
We are now able to appoint all of our contractors and get a schedule in place for a summer 2013 opening!!
Thank you NCC.
