REPORT TO THE PARISH COUNCIL – 30th April 2012
THE PARISH CURCH OF SWAINSTHORPE ST. PETER
COMMUNITY FACILITY PROJECT
The Swainsthorpe Community Charity Trust now has pledged funding for the community facility project of £73,500 and we are hopeful of securing a further grant of £12,000 from BIFFawards towards the end of May.
I am grateful to the Parish Council for agreeing to underwrite £8,000 of the project cost in order that we are able to confirm to our money providers that we have secured all the funding for the project. I hope that we will not have to draw down the £8,000 and that BIFFawards will confirm we have been successful with our application.
The next stage is to get an agreement with the builder that he is able start the project on 6th June 2012. This will give us a little extra time in case there is a delay with the signing of the Lease and obtaining the Faculty. We will sign the contract with the builder after the Lease has been signed and the Faculty is to hand.
Completion is still scheduled for the end of September 2012.
