We have just been informed that the Big Lottery have endorsed our plans for the first 18 months — so we’ve effectively got £100,000 in the bank. A forum meeting will be scheduled soon to work out how to spend it.
William Morris Big Local Partnership have elected a Chair and Vice Chair. They are (respectively) Monwara Ali and Peter Stanton. Congratulations to both. They will have the task of steering the project through the approval stage of the plan, which has now been submitted (see separate entry under “Our Big Local Plan”).
