The project team met recently to discuss the next actions. We have identified a couple of candidate building firms who we intend to ask to tender for the works but we still need to find a couple more suitable candidates. We are looking for well-established traditional building firms who have experience of working on stone built listed buildings. They need to be able to provide a wide range of services from their own workforce rather than sub-contracted. Also, we would prefer to use a firm that can provide project oversight and management. Alternatively, a volunteer from the local community with project management experience would be welcome to provide part-time oversight of the works.

If you know of any building firm that might fit these criteria or of someone who can offer project management skills, please contact me (700502 or email: or Louise Davies (701102 or email:

We already hold sufficient funds to get the majority of the works done but we still need to top these up with additional funding in order to complete the whole project. Discussions are ongoing with the Big Lottery Fund. We are spending a lot of time preparing our most compelling case to support a bid for a grant but of course there is no guarantee that this will be successful. We must hope that the investment of our time proves worthwhile.  More next month.
