HELP US RAISE FUNDS IN ORDER TO BUILD OUR NEW SHED IN 2014.
With the current shed now 27 years old it’s condition has gradually become worse in recent years and the regular maintenance has been unable to keep the shed in a good enough condition. The dutch barn roof has rusted through and ‘leaks like a sieve’, the large doors are rusting out, electrics are outdated and the one side of the shed that has never been concreted floods in heavy rain. We have also been running out of room for the last ten years as the carts being built have become larger and more complex.
Earlier this year we took the major decision that with the club in a good position financially and with a strong membership it was time to tackle a project like replacing the old carnival shed and to build a larger modern facility.
In order to realistically fund a project such as this we also decided to sacrifice the standard of cart to be built in 2013, a minimal amount of funds will be spent on updating last year’s entry and the remaining annual income will be put aside
We would really appreciate it if you could join us in this ‘ONE OFF’ venture and purchase an engraved brick with a personal inscription of your choice. All bricks sold will be put together to make a large thank you wall which will stand within the new shed for decades to come. The special wall will be unveiled when the new shed is officially opened in the summer of 2014.
We are all hoping that this special campaign will be one of the major fundraisers required to help complete the largest project the club have undertaken since the original shed was erected 27 years ago. Funds for the shed are being put aside regularly whilst keeping the normal club account manageable. Alongside extra fundraisers during the summer months this campaign was launched in early July.
We have approached Life Members, Vice Members, local companies, local organisations, friends of the club and members old and new.
