From David Newman:
Sales of the book have gone really well, we have sold 170 copies and taken orders for another 30. As anticipated I was able to place a large order with the printers in early December which reduced the printing cost considerably and maximised the surplus to pass onto the Church and the Village Hall.
Orders still seem to be coming in, but it is now timely to report that we have been able to send cheques for £450 each to the Treasurer of St. Peter’s PCC and to the Treasurer of the Village Hall committee. We requested that the Church uses the funds for a local project such as the proposed sound system or heating project and that the Village Hall uses the funds for their planned VH improvements project.
The Maldon Tourist Information Centre has now offered to stock the book at their High St office, so it looks likely sales will continue.
Many thanks to everyone who has helped to make the project a success.
