The FFGB trustees and key volunteers had a productive meeting on Monday 3rd April. Our main focus remains to prepare a bid to the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) for a Resilient Heritage Scoping Project grant. We hope that this will provide funding for viability studies into potential uses of the bridge, and also some funding to help us establish ourselves as a more robust organisation. At today’s meeting we:
- reported on very helpful meetings with Derby City Council and the Derbyshire Historical Buildings Trust.
- made preparations for an honest review of the things we do well and not so well as an organisation.
- discussed the actions needed to generate the inputs to our HLF Scoping Project bid, especially getting to the point where we can get quotations for the professional work we hope to pay for with the grant
