Update on funding…
As mentioned in last month’s update we have secured £465,000 (£300,000 Heritage Lottery Fund, £25,000 CADW, £140,000 Church Funds/Fundraising). Pursuing our funding target to initially secure a further £200,000 much work is ongoing with a number of major grant applications currently being processed – Community Facilities and Activities Programme and Tourism Investment Support Scheme (both administered by the Welsh Assembly Government) together with two local trusts – Veolia (Landfill Tax) and Aggregates Levy (Aberthaw). We should be in a position to report on the outcome of these applications during October.
The project team are grateful for the assistance of Richard Jones and Helen Embling (Diocesan Resources Officers) for their advice and support.
