One thought on “Sharing a few updates

  1. Hi

    Many thanks for sharing, I’ll definitely be exploring the Restart Grant further and possibly the Community Renewal Fund.

    Can I take this opportunity to send my apologies for the next Network meeting on 8th of April 2021? I’ll be on leave as we have some caring responsibilities for my 90 year old father in law so will be engaged in this. However, one of our trustees (Stuart Lynd, who is also our treasurer) will be attending and has already booked his place. Stuart has a particular interest in art, and we are in the process of setting up a local art group at our centre, with plans to host exhibitions, so the Jess Huffman of the National Rural Touring Forum session will be of great interest for him. As he hasn’t attended before, I’m sure you will make him welcome.
