Heritage Lottery Fund update

Unfortunately, for the third time, our application for a grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund has failed.  On this occasion ours was one of 47 applications, of which only 7 were successful. The HLF had just £16 million to distribute amongst these applicants at its Board meeting in December; the sum of all the applications amounted to £123 million!

As Joseph Chamberlain himself said, “If we fail, let us try again and again until we succeed.” 

The trustees are setting aside a day in January to consider a range of alternative options for taking the project forward. We’ll keep you updated….
