  • Ian Dinmore I learnt something today... The Platypus is only one of a few creatures that lays eggs and produces milk for their young - that means it can make it's own custard :)

  • Martin Yallop From the Spacehive website: https://www.spacehive.com/ The Ultimate Guide to Crowdfunding Spacehive is a funding platform for projects that make local places better. By providing the tools you need to develop your ideas, get noticed by crowds of people, companies, councils and the media, we help you attract funding to make great projects happen. And now we have  a complete guide  to help you formulate your project idea, plan and promote your campaign, pitch for funds and bring your project to life. Chapters include: Defining your idea Presenting your project Planning your campaign Approaching businesses Pledging and payments Communicating your campaign Writing a press release Hosting a pledge party Pitching and Verification Delivering your project Top tips for a successful campaign Why crowdfunding? Crowdfunding – lots of people giving small amounts of money – isn’t a new concept. In fact, back in the 1700s the base of the Statue of Liberty was crowdfunded through public conscription. They received monumental (heh) support and everyone who pledged a dollar or more was rewarded with a mini Statue of Liberty in thanks. Fast forward to present day and using crowdfunding to generate public support for an idea has become more mainstream. The benefits of running a campaign are clear; it allows you to raise awareness and support, get validation for your idea, unlock grants and other funds as well as create a band of advocates for your project. Although running a crowdfunding campaign involves time, energy and a lot of hard work, with plenty of planning and preparation it can help you achieve amazing things.

Promoting Discover Amazing Women By Rail with Marjorie Birch of WiCR; CRL & Clitheroe Line.

  • Graham Ellis Worse than a wedding!   Does anyone have any tips and guidance as to whom our young CRP should invite to the ACoRP awards in Southport?  So many volunteers, and paid partner members who go far and away beyond in what they do for us, and a number of people whom we should politically invite ...
