Subscriptions

2018-trough
Plants at Bromac

In order to raise funds to support ADAS activities such as planting and the Big Switch On we conduct an envelope drop in the Audlem district requesting subscriptions from residents to join ADAS each year.

Residents can return as much as they would like to, however, a minimum of £2 will give the resident an ADAS membership and entitlement to vote at AGM meetings.

By giving consent for Gift-Aid, the resident enables us to claim an extra 25% of their donation from HMRC.

All money raised is used by ADAS to benefit the village.

Donations can be made by clicking on Charities Aid Foundation or given to any committee member

During 2018 ADAS funds will be used for:

  • Funding winter and summer planting schemes, which after a donation of £1000 from the Parish Council costs ADAS around £2000
    Winter planting of pansies and tulips, hyacinths and crocus bulbs costs around £800
  • Funding the Big Switch On, which after a donation from the Parish Council costs ADAS around £800 subject to how many tree lights have to be replaced. We are also gradually replacing lights in large trees at the entrance to the village e.g. at Broadway and Woore road bridge.
  • We have an ongoing flower tub replacement programme. As the existing tubs become unusable normally because the bottoms rot, we are replacing them with plastic ones which looks as much like oak tubs as possible, but don't rot. We have already replaced 13 of the 38 tubs and expect to spend £240 each year to buy 6 tubs.
  • We also have the ADAS annual costs of around £550 for Public liability insurance, entering North West in Bloom and our AGM.

    Projects for this year and subsequent years:
    Water butts in the village — 3 have already been installed, with 1 other location agreed.
    Benches at the car park entrance — funding applied for from the Co-op community fund
    Benches under the beech tree next to the co-op — permission from Parish Council applied for.
    Refurbish Canal side bed — funding obtained from the Co-op community fund. Planting to commence in the Autumn (now delayed until Spring 2019)
    Raised beds outside the Charity shop.
