As our crowd-funding campaign draws to an end, we reflect back on what has been an eventful couple of months with the project.

Afer a strong start and over 180 supporter tiles sold, we are delighted to announce that we were able to reach a total of £7020 towards the construction of our new Fan Zone project.

As a means of giving back to the supporters & community of Altrincham and as part of the first phase of our long term redevelopment strategy, we wanted to test the true definition of 'self build' architecture.

With help from some amazing people including Steven Miller for Enginus and Danielle Smythe from Libero, construction has finally commenced on the Fan Zone pods, with an anticipated completion date of January 2021.

Over the past couple of months Danielle and Gavin have been leading the way by seeking corporate sponsorship to fund this ambitious build. As part of a way to get the supporters involved, we launched a crowdfunding initiative in September 2020, providing supporters and the community a chance to be a part of the first phase the project through our 'Buy a Brick' campaign.

With over £15,000 raised to date through the generosity of both corporate and supporter sponsors, we are progressing with the off site construction of the 'pods' and ground works due to commence in December.
