In May this year, Trowbridge Town Council agreed to make a borrowing application to secure the remaining funding for the ‘Onwards & Upwards’ expansion project at Trowbridge Museum. Having already received approval from the Heritage Lottery Fund for a grant of £1.17 million, and a generous donation from the Friends of Trowbridge Museum of £150,000, the Council needs to borrow up to £900,000 over a 25 year fixed interest loan, which would cost around £50,000 per annum. However, the Town Council has factored this cost into its long-term financial plans, and it will not require any increase in the precept to pay for it. At the same time, the Town Council welcomes views, suggestions and feedback from Trowbridge residents on the project, and associated borrowing approval application.
