Hi everyone! The children are back at school, autumn is with us, and the leaves are starting to fall – and the Slough Fort Preservation Trust team is working hard as always!
Strood Scouts have visited us this month! The Scout troop came for a guided tour around the Slough Fort site one evening, and they loved it that much they plan to come back again next year for one of their camps – we can’t wait! Are you a member of a local Scouts troop, Guides group, Cadets group, or other local group, or know of one near you? Please head over to our Contact Us page and let us know – we’d love to have you on site!
In other news, restoration work in the Guardroom is progressing once more, this time thanks to a generous £1,000 grant from Medway Corporate Giving via the Kent Community Foundation. These funds will go towards reinstating some of the brickwork in the Guardroom, taking us one step closer to fully restoring yet another area of the Slough Fort site. Thank you very much to all at Medway Corporate Giving and the Kent Community Foundation for their generous support of our Project!
