The yard of ale totaliser outside the Royal Oak has been removed. This does not mean that we have reached our target, and certainly not that we have given up, just that the combined effects of Ciara and Dennis have been too much for the paper print. I’ll patch it up for now, but am considering replacing it with something a bit tougher. Update: rushed back on Tuesday in time for ITV News who were filming in the Square. Let’s hope it sees us through to £200K.

In the meantime, the total continues to be updated on this page (and the Share Offer page). We are getting closer all the time, but really need to close the gap by the end of February, so if you are thinking of joining us (or are able to put a bit more in the pot) thank you, and please do not delay!
