Unsurprisingly it has been a quiet week for fund raising for our new air fence but once the festive season is over we are sure that fundraising will build momentum once again.

However, we are pleased to display a photograph above of one of our fence panels which has now been completed at the English Midlands base of the manufacturer. In fact the majority of the fence panels have now been constructed and will be ready for delivery in March of next year.

Although it has been a quiet week for fundraising we can confirm that we have commitments for 32 of the 33 fence panels that will form our air barrier. We are just a fraction short of having sold out of the panels before Christmas but maybe that can happen before we enter 2014.

The Fence Fund now stands at £11368.83, an excellent effort considering serious fund raising only commenced in late October.
