Thanks to everyone who voted for us for money from the Aviva Community Fund for our pond. We got nearly 2,000 votes, which is testament to the brilliant community of Forest Gate pulling together to help make great things happen and support our vision. This means we are definitely in the running for funding subject to checks
See our Facebook and Twitter sites, plus this blog, for more news on this and other funding soon. We're applying for as much as we can from various sources so that we can make the best garden possible.
Go Team Forest Gate! We hope to bring you frogs and newts very soon!
PS If you are good at or experienced in funding applications we'd love to from you as we need all the help we can get – room on the Steering Group for you...
