At the end of May, we were delighted to hear that our application to New Charter for a grant under Great Neighbourhoods had been successful. We were awarded £6000 to pay for a full time boatbuilder until end September. This is great news ! Martin Lowe who has worked on Hazel before during Stuart’s absence will now be working 5 days per week and will provide the final push to get “Hazel’s” restoration completed. The timing could’nt have been better !
We are indebted to New Charter and hope that, through “Hazel” , we may be able to develop a mutually beneficial partnership.
