Heritage Lottery Fund visits Deane Road Cemetery

Sally our caseworker from the HLF came to see us at the cemetery last week to talk about our submitting our second stage bid, but it seems there will be a mountain of work to do before we get there. We will need to employ a consultant to help us with a lot of the specialist reports we need to submit, but the HLF have found us a mentor to help us to move in the right direction.

The sun shone while we showed them round the cemetery and a huge dragon fly came and hovered over our heads, offering his support to our thoughts about how parts of the cemetery could be a haven for wild life, that it does not all need to be municiply sheared down to the ground.

I think they could feel our passion and they certainly enjoyed hearing Saul's stories about the people buried there. They took a copy of the DVD home to watch later - which reminds me, I need to agree a date for screening at FACT for that
