We are delighted to be able let you know that the Heritage Lottery Fund has sent ﬁnal conﬁrmation that they are contributing £220,000 to St Leonard’s Redevelopment Fund. This was earmarked for us, but it is only because we as a community have raised the balance this year. The total sum we now have is around £350,000 – and that is before we receive an estimated £50,000 of VAT returns. Thank you for all your amazing work and support to achieve this!
We can now progress with our plans to repair the roof and replace the loos and kitchen. As you know, we are already moving on with other parts of the programme, to improve comfort and access to our lovely building, so this is just the start. And when we know the exact details of when we will start, we will of course let you all know.
Anna, Caroline and the Redevelopment Team
