Unfortunately, our application for funding under the Unique Heritage Infrastructure stream of the Community Economic Recovery Infrastructure Program was not successful. The applications for this particular grant exceeded the amount available five fold. I suppose that we were part of the 80% that were not successful.
Our volunteer partnership with BC Parks continue and we will continue to work with 85Vics to conserve the artefacts on the island for future generations. I'm currently working on breaking down the large project into smaller items that we can tackle as funding and manpower come available.
The Regiment (COVID permitting) is considering a visit to the island in the Fall. Could coastal artillery fortification maintenance fit into their training syllabus?
