The tasks of discussing and signing wayleaves have had to take second place to the work in the field but further progress has been made in New Hutton. Investments have continued to come in. The total now stands at £342,450. The number of expressions of interest has risen to 388 which is 80.8% of all premises in the three parishes. In New Hutton the percentage is an amazing 87.6%. At the end of February, B4SW was invited to apply for the remaining £980 in a Cumbria County Council Community Fund. The money would have been lost if it had not been allocated by the 28th February. £980 has now been officially granted and we thank CCC for it. It has gone towards the purchase of a micro-digger which will be used free of charge by hamlets throughout the three parishes to help them lay service ducts to houses. A micro-digger has been bought.
