New Hut Planning Permission has been granted and the park have been notified. Mark has a meeting on the last Wednesday in Feb to discuss logistics. The manager of the park and the clubs main supporter with the park (Emily)have unfortunately now left the Trust so this meeting is to renew relations with the parks management. We currently have £10k to go towards the build of the new club house, we have obtained 2 quotes so far, one being £16k and one being £17k, we are still waiting on a 3rd quote. Either way it is looking like we will have to build the club house. Mark is speaking to the park to discuss the possibility of some assistance from the park in its construction.
