TWENTY THOUSAND POUND GRANT SECURED FOR FOOTPATH PROJECT

Thanks to the online votes of our members and supporters, we have been awarded one of the District Council's "£20k for 7" grants.

Claire Birch, Secretary and Elaine Robinson, Acting Chair collectied the Friends' "Golden Ticket" from Council Leader Richard Blunt at the awards ceremony on Wednesday 17th December 2014. See the photo on our Projects page

We still have to raise a further £25000 to make the footpath a reality and the Golden Ticket will only be honoured by the Council when our fund raising reaches another £20k. So the real challenge now begins.

We have recently begun the process of applying to the Heritage Lottery Fund for the rest of the money and will be meeting with them in the New Year to discuss our bid.
