On 16th December 2016 we were formally notified from the Yorkshire Dales National Park that we have been given £8,000 SDF grant for Environmental Improvements to Bullpot Farm. This money will be available for a year from the start of the project on 1st February 2017 and relies on us getting planning permission from the National Park and the club also obtaining a new lease from the Whelprigg estate, when it runs out in January.
The three parts of the project are to provide assistance for improvements to our grey water system, a new tackle store and new library facilities upstairs. The planning application was approved by the National Park in January. Work will start in the Spring.
