Full ahead, steady as she goes.

The trust held a very positive meeting with a representative from Persimmon homes on the 31 October. True to their word, Persimmon have done a great job of tidying up the pumping station and have blocked of the open widows to prevent any further bird ingress.

They have also done the asbestos survey and removed much of the bird mess. The place looks in much better shape. We are now just awaiting the return of some final documentation to handover the keys for the licence.

Safety training is in an advanced state of planning, details of which should be released soon. Finally, we have a arranged a new meeting venue for the January meetings in the new year. All of this is major steps in the right direction to achieving our aims.

The trust is also very busy preparing a bid for a Resilient Heritage Grant. The Resilient Heritage Grant will enable the trust to commission a specialist engineering company to conduct a feasibility study on the 190 HP Cornish Beam Engine with a view of returning the engine to steam operation again.

The Resilient Heritage Grant will also be used to fund some training for members of the trust, so that we can allow access to the building to the public.

Saving Sandfields Pumping Station is an incredibly exciting project, and we would like everyone to become a part of it. Please consider joining the Lichfield Waterworks Trust by clicking the membership link here.

Online membership application form

Membership is free, but a small donation would always be very much appreciated. We have an enormous amount of expenditure coming up with the legal fees relating to the access licence, so any amount, however small, will be most welcome.

You can donate either at our online donation link here.
