Project Completion Approved!
Please see the following announcement from our Project Manager, Dr. Martin Salisbury.
Following the enormous success of our recent programme of ZOOM Heritage Talks and the video narration of our Timeline Display Boards (thus defeating Covid, which prevented the planned gatherings), the Heritage Lottery Fund have now approved the completion of our Community Project!
This means that the remaining 10% of the grant that we won will be fully released in due course towards the remaining porch roofworks. Even though we will still be around £7,000 short (see the link to our JustGiving appeal below, donations are essential and most appreciated, please donate), this is great news and a huge vote of confidence for everything we have done via the Community Project, which is now practically complete.
Massive credit and gratitude to our fabulous, talented, hard working and unstoppable St. Swithun’s Community Team, here listed in alphabetical order:
