Town Council grant to FOG

Breaking news for all our Friends of the Green volunteers.  Prior to Covid 19 we had been offered free lunches by many of the businesses in Silloth for our volunteering sessions.  We felt that due to the lockdown it would be churlish to ask them for the free lunches at the moment, so we looked at paying for these our selves however because of these unprecedented times we face, the Town Council have generously donated £500 to us which will allow us to continue when we safely can, with extra sessions needed in the beginning to bring our work up to date and to also support our local businesses to help them through this difficult time. We are very grateful to the Town Council in understanding the need to offer our excellent volunteers refreshments.  The Buzz will carry further news about our newest project.  Thank you to you all for your patience in regard to our sessions and we hope we will be out soon.
