Monkton Priors .... Funding Gap.
« on: January 14, 2018, 10:48:17 PM »
There has not been much activity on the Monkton Priors project over the past few months and part of that is down to a potential funding deficit.

Although there is a sizeable balance still in the special fund, that is only due to very substantial claims for reimbursement of cost of materials having been held in abeyance.

When the necessary reimbursements have been made and the estimated cost of completing the layout are taken into account, there will be a shortfall.

This situation has arisen in part as a consequence of the cancellation of the 2017 AGM exhibition, at which it had been had hoped to raise another 250GBP, through sales of donated items, a raffle, sales of the special mugs, etc.

I still have around 30 of the special mugs here and if each of those were sold for 6GBP each, the balance to make up the missing 250GBP would likely be achieved by the raffle and other sales at the forthcoming AGM.

So, if you have not already bought a mug or two, then please reserve your mug(s) now for collection at the AGM.

Thank you,

John.

Hello John

Please put me down for two mugs to be collected at the AGM. I hope you succeed in reaching the target. Just as an aside, could you tell me the latest on the Sentinel project please.

Regards
David
