We are pleased to announce that after several months of negotiations, The Swanage TC Group was, at a meeting of the Swanage Railway Trust Council of Management on the 30th of August, officially adopted as a Sub Group of the Swanage Railway Trust. This will be further reinforced by the imminent signing of a 99 year lease of the Unit to the Trust. Our restoration plan was also approved.
Not only does this guarantee our Unit a permanent home at the Swanage Railway once restoration is completed, but it also opens the door to the many benefits of carrying out the restoration as part of a charitable trust. This includes gift aid on any members and supporters donations.
We are planning a meeting open to all our members in the next few weeks to explain this new arrangement in detail and to explain the restoration plan and we also hope to make another exciting announcement within the next few weeks, so watch this space!
We thank you for your ongoing support.
The Swanage TC Group Committee
