It’s official: we’ve just received written confirmation that our grant application for new chairs was successful. Here’s how the letter begins:

“Firstly, may I take this opportunity to congratulate you on the excellent progress you have made to date. I am now pleased to inform you that, further to your recent application, the Vale of Glamorgan Council (‘the Council’), through Creative Rural Communities (it’s Regeneration Partnership), has agreed to commit grant funding set out in the table below…”

Our thanks to Creative Rural Communities for all their encouragement and support to date. We look forward to putting the new seating through its paces at our opening screening of the autumn/winter season (THE GREAT GATSBY, Friday 27 September).
