Building work continues apace with walls springing up!
Building work continues apace with the foundations going in!
Following a highly successful fundraising campaign, Almeley Wootton decided that there are sufficient funds to allow building work to commence.
A local construction firm, JDW won the tender and started work on site today. Further fundraising will continue to reduce the shortfall currently covered by an interest-free loan.
The news that Almeley Wootton Friends Meeting House has been awarded a £40,000 grant by the National Churches Trust was enough to claim the front page and lead story in the Quaker weekly, the Friend.
A week later, Almeley Wootton was again mentioned, this time in the letters when Hannah James, a member of the fundraising committee wrote to thank all of the individuals, Meetings and grant-making bodies for the other financial support offered to the project over the last few years.
