After months of work and a nailbiting wait we are delighted to have been awarded Arts Council England funding! This enables us to start developing all the other aspects of the project that we have envisioned – drawing workshops for all, schools workshops, festival walks, bringing together people who feel isolated and much more. The award will also enable us to pay a few people for at least some of the time, expertise and dedication that has been given to the creating of this project with absolutely no strings attached!
R &J Hogg (conservation builders) will be on site some time between mid September and early October. They will be strenghthening and repairing the chapel walls around the chosen window opening to make them suitable for the istallation next year. The mortar will be hardening off through the autumn. Although they will only be on site for about 3 days their work is fairly weather dependent which is why we cannot say and exact date. All due care will be taken to wildlife and the historic building!
