Update on Deane Road Cemetery and our HLF bid

The HLF NW Regional Committee (sic) met yesterday and have agreed to welcome a second round bid from us for the funds we need to restore the cemetery.

Last week, on one of the hottest days of the year, Saul and I showed a couple of their office management team around while we explained how and why the bid had increased nearly twofold between rounds 1 and 2. This conversation was vitally important as we needed them to maintain their faith in our project and our beloved cemetery in the face of this increase. We heard today that they were still positive about the programme so we have today submitted our round two bid. Now please keep everything crossed for us! It will go to the December committee for a decision.
