'The Directors of Huon Valley Financial Services Ltd (HVFSL) and its franchisees the Huon Valley Community Bank branches are pleased to advise they have approved sponsorship funding of $4000.00 (four thousand dollars) in support of the trailer construction for the Bendigo St Ayles Skiff in accordance with your recent application. I also wish to thank you for the recent supply of the quotation for the trailer construction.' 

This is fantastic news:  there are all sorts of opportunities for using the skiff around the state (and even interstate), and having a trailer available will make this much more feasible.  A big thank you to the Bendigo Community Bank.  A thank you as well to Graham Rankin who has negotiated this grant with Bendigo.

David Budd has the organisation of the purchase of a trailer well in hand, and we think that a good time to do the big handover might be the Midwinter Celebration (20th June) when we launch the new skiff.
