Newsletter 15 an Unusually Long Time in Section

Newsletter 15s were posted to silver and gold members on Thursday 15 December, but unfortunately these seem to be subject to confusion and delay as some members have reported that they have taken a long time to arrive or still haven’t arrived.

I’m sorry for this delay, presumably caused by the volume of Christmas post in the system, hopefully all the newsletters will be delivered soon.

If your newsletter still hasn’t arrived by Wednesday 28 December please let us know.

Big Lottery Fund Grant to Swindon Panel

Volunteers are essential to Swindon Panel. Without you we wouldn’t have been able to achieve what we have. In recognition of the importance of its volunteers, we are delighted to announce that the Society has been granted £6,000 by the Big Lottery Fund to help us to develop volunteering!

This will help provide resources to help us to find new volunteers and also make it easier for people to participate. It will also be used to provide skills development for our existing volunteers. Looking ahead, we will soon be guiding visitors round our unique exhibit and need to ensure the maximum educational and enjoyment value – the grant will be useful in developing our presentation skills here too.

Look out for more news on this exciting development in the near future!

Very many thanks to Tim who has lead this process from the very beginning and everyone who has helped along the way!

There remains a lot of work to be done on the physical aspects of the building and the search for funding for this continues…
