The first round application to the Heritage Lottery Fund has been made and will be considered at their meeting in September.
We have had good discussions with the officer dealing with our grant but it is a competitive process so there is no guarantee of funding, even for a very good project like ours.
If successful this time we will receive funding to prepare the final application for the main grant. We hope to submit that application by next March so that they will make a decision in June. This timetable is tight as there is a lot of work needed to gather
the detailed building costs and to prepare an activity plan for the future use of the building. If you would like to be involved in any way please get in touch. Tel: 01825 765684
