Even though we are in a state of lock-down at present, work still goes on behind the scenes.

We are happy to announce that a contract for the first stage of the pavilion restoration has been awarded following a successful tender process. All current works are subject to the Covid-19 government guidelines and restrictions on outdoor work, as well as good practice guidelines.

Planning approval for minor changes to the pavilion plans has been granted by WBC, and tender documents for the second phase of works are in preparation.
 

Fundraising

The IMPFT is committed to maintaining, and where possible, improving the facilities that remain free to Inkpen residents. This extends to improvements to the children's play equipment, especially for the under 5 year olds, and a new woodland walk.

These free services inevitably come at a cost to our charity, and in order to cover these costs we have to both seek out grants, and fund raise, with afternoon tea and cake events, car boot sales, jumble sales, open garden weekends and the like.

In spite of the current Covid-19 restrictions, it is important that we continue to fund-raise. There are relatively few grant opportunities and competition is particularly fierce. None-the-less, having made a compelling case we are proud to announce that we have been successful in obtaining a grant of £10,000 from the National Lottery Community Fund. Many thanks to the fund-raising committee.

With your support we very much hope we will have a newly renovated sports pavilion in place by the end of this year.
