When will it happen?
We are currently in the process of raising the significant amount of money outstanding for this project. This includes raising funds locally, such as the recent production of HMS Pinafore and our regular refreshment stall at Barnes Fair. We are also actively seeking grants from local and national bodies. We have just applied for planning permission from Richmond-upon-Thames Borough Council.
If we can secure the funds in time, we hope to start work during the Easter holidays, 2020 (3-20 April) and complete the external work by the following half term (25-29 May). The work will, obviously, require significant amounts of scaffolding and will be weather-dependent. We shall endeavour to keep the local community up to date with all our plans.
We currently expect to hear about our planning application by the end of September, 2019.
