Heritage Lottery Fund at St Mary's
Over the next six months Roger Freeston is leading St Mary’s Phase 2 bid for further lottery funding which, if successful, will enable us to tackle many of the repairs and renewals needed on the roof and tower.
In parallel with this Louise Hodder, our HLF Project Mentor, is developing our bid for funds to renew and enhance the heritage visitor experience. She’s hoping for some volunteer input, see below for details of what’s coming up.

HLF Project – volunteer needed for data input, November 2014

During November we will be gathering some information about the number of visitors we have and their experiences. This short term volunteer opportunity would involve helping to record the findings from this research into an excel database. If you feel that you have the necessary IT skills to help with this and could give a couple of hours each week during November then we would love to hear from you.
Please email Louise Hodder (St. Mary's HLF Project Mentor) at or speak to Roger Freeston or Paul Sibly to find out more.
