Final Appeal for funds for connection to the network
Work is still ongoing to make this happen, but attempts to secure funding from grant giving bodies etc. has not succeeded. Therefore funding is still insufficient to place any orders.
There are four main elements:
The crossover and S & T works are ineligible for grant aiding by HLF or WREN as we do not own all the land. An application has been lodged with WREN for a grant to install our turntable (currently behind the South African loco, acquired from Hitchin in 1978) so that visiting locomotives can be turned.
THIS IS LIKELY TO BE OUR LAST CHANCE TO PUT BRC ON THE RAILWAY MAP, ATTRACT LARGE VISITING LOCOMOTIVES AND ENABLE OCCASIONAL SHUTTLES TO AYLESBURY AND / OR CLAYDON.
IT WOULD BE THE MAKING OF THE CENTRE IN OUR 40th YEAR!
We need to find about another £120,000. It does not need to be in a single lump sum, smaller amounts all add up. If 47 of us gave a gift aided £2,000 we would reach the target. Can you help us, please?
PLEASE HELP US IF YOU ARE ABLE AND PLEDGE YOUR FINANCIAL SUPPORT TO OUR
