Each year we need insurance for public liability, employers liability for volunteers, use of equipment and our own equipment.
We pay rent for use of a meeting room and costs for printing, copying, stationery, postage etc.
There are costs for subscriptions and training
Mowing the woodland is currently costing about ¬£150 a year for petrol.
We have purchased signs for use when we are grass, hedge or tree-cutting and also personal protection equipment for volunteers.
We have to pay the costs for fund-raising events in the form of materials, publicity etc.
We have a list of projects we are working through. Wherever possible we are applying for grants but in some cases the grant covers only part of the cost or a grant is not available. In those cases we will do what we can with the resources we have.
