Building Update

Work is still progressing on the new headquarters, thanks largely to JKD Electrical Services of Blackhill who are doing all the electrical work for free!
First fix electrics and heating are now just about complete and we are planning the next stage, of insulating and plasterboarding.
We have also had some great news this week. Lottery fund Awards for All has offered us almost £10,000 towards the fitting out of the headquarters once the building work is complete.
With all the fund raising as well, we now just need around £20,000 to complete the work, and start using the building.
We are still hoping to be in by September, but need some good luck on the grants front to keep the momentum going.
