Ashfield Council have started a consultation for how the Towns Fund should be spent and our Science Discovery Centre and Planetarium proposal is included in the options, which is a great step forward for us.
We have asked for a contribution from the Towns Fund to our construction costs and this may allow us to leverage an even larger contribution from the National Lottery Heritage Fund. Our chances of being included in the final Towns Fund business plan will be greatly enhanced if we can get a large number of positive responses to the consultation. People who complete the consultation will also be entered into a £100 prize draw.
We would be grateful if you could circulate this message and link and encourage people to complete the consultation and add support to our proposal.
The consultation only runs until the 30th May, so if you can add your support we would be most grateful.
