As expected, we have not yet heard from the Big Lottery Fund about our grant application. Competition for grant monies is fierce and the process for scrutinising and evaluating bids is complex and thorough. We can only hope that our hard work will be rewarded with a favourable decision.

In the meantime, we have submitted a Stage 1 application for a grant from the Village Halls Improvement Fund which is managed by Action with Communities in Rural England (ACRE). Again we have to wait and see if our submission hits the right note and we are invited to submit a formal Stage 2 bid.

Hopefully, we shall have more news next month.

Finally, with so many great photographers in the village, how about having a go at the competition below and help your Village Hall with much needed fundraising at the same time?
