SGC the museum has made 3 unsuccessful bids to the Heritage Lottery Fund at a total cost of over £18k for various professional and consultants' reports. This is not to say that future applications will not be made, particularly for small grants etc. but, at this stage, the museum is entirely dependant on donations.
It's the AGM tomorrow at 1930 at the Flying Shack at Gloucestershire Airport, Staverton. All are welcome to attend. The museum really has gathered momentum over the last 12 months and raised more then £50k during that period. It has secured planning permission, been granted a 90-year lease (at a peppercorn rent, courtesy of the Airport authority) and is ready to build. Exciting times, entirely due to the efforts of an indefatigable group of enthusiasts.
