South Normanton Community Arts Annual Report for the financial year 1980-1981

The report contains 7 pages of typewritten text with a financial statement as the 8th page. Although the front cover refers only to South Normanton Community Arts, the text within refers to Junction 28 throughout.

Junction 28 Arts Project [draft] annual report for 1982-1983

This report does not have a front cover or any illustrations and includes a copy of Junction 28's grant application for 1982-1983. The text begins with the words "Junction 28 has been established for nearly seven years", whereas D7913/1/1/1983 refers to the project having been founded five years previously. The text of the two documents is entirely different and yet they both appear to refer to the 1982-1983 financial year - hence the suggested designation of this document as a draft for the the next.
