Progress report 1
Well we've been up and running over 2 months now.
To date we have announced our presence via this blog and local newspaper reports. There has been a steady flow of new members including our first junior member and first overseas member (Sweden).
We are about to get the website up and running, possibly in the next week.
We have funds in the bank!
We have launched the Midford station appeal, wth pledges of over £1500 already, and press releases now with all the major magazines.
Over the next three months I will expect us to -
Increase membership by 200%.
Have the website fully operational with full e-commerce facilities etc.
Have reached £5000+ with the Midford appeal.
Launch fully along the route via local newspapers and magazines.
Hold our first meeting (please contact me with availability so we can set this up for June).
