funding?

i’ve been silent for a while, mainly because we’re waiting on some important news

recently we were encouraged to apply for funding to our local council so we could make wrapped in st marys an annual event

Wrapped in St Marys 2012

after filling in the application we’ve been told by a council officer that our application has been approved in principle

hooray – this is fantastic news!

the council meeting is on monday 17 december – i can’t wait to hear what their final decision is …
