Despite not being in touch too much we have not been idle recently.
Firstly, despite the severe cold spells and snow the plants are telling us Spring is well on the way -
Despite not getting full funding from Aviva (thanks for voting!) we are well on the way to paying for a trailer -
We have now become affiliated to Pill & Easton-
One local firm with offices at Ham Green, Wilmott Dixon, have given us a sizeable donation and have offered to produce a new leaflet as well. The leaflet we have needs to be updated -
Fundraising continues because we have regular running costs as well and, as yet, no regular income other than our monthly walks. That could change as we are in negotiations with North Somerset and a possible sponsor, who wants to put up signs something like "Flower Bank supported by......."
As you know the new Data Protection law comes into force soon; Noel has been on a course to understand our responsibilities and I've been sorting out the lists of names we keep on our data base. That alone is a major task.
Also in the background our new committee is working on a new management plan and agreement with North Somerset Council -
There will be no work parties for a while but once the haymaking season comes there will be plenty to do!
Many thanks for supporting Flower Bank
