FAST WINS FUNDING FOR MUSEUM ANNEX
For sometime FAST has planned to re-roof the Balloon School Annex with roof tiles more appropriate to the original build. And so it is with much delight that we learn that our bid to the South East Museum Development Programme, using public funding from Arts Council England, has been successful. Work will start in Spring 2017 to re-roof, add insulation and provide much needed heating to the Museum Annex. The work should be able to be progressed without any closures of the Annex displays.
