S.H.A.R.E., the Hall Committee and the Parish Council are pooling their efforts to support a bid for an M&S grant to raise funds for the hall, and we hope we can count on you as well. On September 4th voting starts on line to secure our bid for a Tesla PowerWall, a storage unit to capture the energy generated by the solar panels installed on the hall roof 2 years ago, which can then be used when the sun is not shining. Running in conjunction with this, we are Crowd-Funding, i.e. raising money through donated items that you can purchase. If successful this project could bring in 12,000 pounds to the hall for these improvements, which will help ensure the hall stays viable for the future.
We have already been shortlisted so have negotiated the first hurdle, now WE NEED VOTES. LOTS OF VOTES. More votes than the parish alone can generate, so we’ve asked neighbouring parishes to help us and we’re asking YOU to spread the word, to your friends, work colleagues, all groups you belong to. Share the message on email and other social medial platforms and really get behind this. £12,000 is a chunk of change we could really use. M&S want to give it to us if we can demonstrate enough support.
To show we are serious about this project, we are also looking to raise £1500 by donations and purchasing gifted items. We have some amazing products and services already gifted and are looking for more to reach our target. If you can offer something please contact Astrid or Ali.
When the M&S web site goes live on September 4th all the details will be there. Meanwhile take a sneak peek on the www.south-hill.co.uk web site to see those that have committed support so far. Endsleigh Nursery has gifted us a number of trees, shrubs and rose plants to sell for the project. They are in the driveway at Green Meadows for you to take a look at and buy. From Golberdon crossroads, take the South Hill Rd and at the next junction, Green Meadows is on the left. Come and get a bargain and support the PARISH HALL.
