Our new storeroom comes closer thanks to our great supporters
We have been needing more space for some time and ScotRail has come to our rescue again by giving us the use of the station's old salt store. However, the store is in very poor condition and needs expensive renovations before it can be occupied. The cost of improvement is reckoned at £30,000.
Since our fund-raising campaign started we have received grants from varous bodies as well as donations from many private individuals. Soon we will be able to start renovating our new store. Watch this space.
