Old Girls School Grant Update

17th October, 2016

We recently notified you that the Old Girls School (which is being transformed so that it can be used as a valuable community facility) has qualified for a grant of between £8-12,000 under Tesco’s Bags of Help scheme.
The grant will be used for landscaping and disabled access at the front of the building and the amount we get will depend upon residents voting. Voting was due to open on 26th September, but unfortunately, due to a shortage in voting equipment which is outside of Tesco’s control, it has become necessary to delay the customer voting until 31 October to 13 November (originally planned to take place 26 September to 9 October). They have taken this step to ensure that all Tesco customers have the opportunity to vote and that every store is participating.
We will let you have more reminders about this.
