Hello everyone and thank you for your most valued support. We will be presenting our bid to our local councillors at Cheshire West and Chester Council on Wednesday 7th December, and have fingers and toes crossed that we will be able to gain their strong support. Our chances are enhanced by having as much visible community support as we can gather, so we do need as many of our friends and family to join us in our quest. So, if you feel that you are able to help by encouraging any of your contacts to make even a small pledge it would greatly appreciated. "Pledgers" are perhaps more important at this stage than the amount of money raised. Looking ahead we therefore hope to provide you with a positive update about a week after our presentation - and if we are successful, we then hope local businesses to help us close the funding gap. We can look forward with some degree of confidence - and of course relax a little and enjoy a Happy Christmas.
