Reading Hydro - Getting closer to building the turbine house

Thank you for supporting our efforts to raise money for the turbine house which will protect the equipment generating electricity from our twin Archimedes screws. We've had a bit of a delayed due to the very high water level on the Thames, but we are underway again and work on the turbine house is due to start in a few weeks. 

Have a look at how work was progressing before the heavy rain!

We are over half-way to our initial target of £4,000 and need a final push to raise the money to cover the materials - if you can share the link below to our Crowdfunder page with friends, family and colleagues we can make this happen!!
