The project is on track and planning permission for the new lake design has just been granted. Final legal work is underway and once complete we will prepare for construction.

Hi guys! I am really surprised to see that there is no activity, no website or any update whatsoever about the project. It is really hard to find any information about it. Can you tell me why this might be, and perhaps where i can get some information? thank you

Hi Nick, how are you? just got to know about this project and am keen to support you guys with a pledge and perhaps some more support. I am not being able to pledge though... seems to be something wrong with the website because every time I click on the t-shirt it just reloads the same page... please let me know if I'm doing something wrong. Also, I work at the Carbon Trust - a leading low-carbon innovation organisation in the UK - think we should speak on the phone and hopefully arrange for some support. Let me know what you think and let's chat. best regards and congratulations for the initiative! João Lampreia

Great stuff guys! I've been watching this project from the beginning, really hoping it would go ahead. Partially the reason I moved to Bristol from Wales! This is such a thing to be proud of and a good testament to crowd-funding great projects!

I live a long way from Bristol. Myself and the family are really looking forward to having a holiday close and spending as much time in the water as possible. What a great idea and project. GOOD LUCK!!!
