God is clearly blessing this project – especially now we have taken the step of faith of pressing the ‘go’ button. In the last couple of weeks we have been awarded grants of £2500 by the Beatrice Laing Trust and £1000 from the Rank Foundation Pebble Grant scheme. We are deeply grateful to both funders for their generous support.
Currently I am in the process of pulling together an application for (regular) planning permission from the local authority for the new boiler flue that is needed. It is slightly complicated by the fact that the building is held in trust, but we’ll get there. At least the listed building consent is already obtained!
