An introduction from the Mancroft Appeal300 chairman

Welcome to the Mancroft Appeal300 Project

A Round-One Pass

We are thrilled to be able to tell you that Mancroft Appeal 300 has been awarded a first-round pass by The Heritage Lottery Fund. What this means for our project is that we will now be preparing a second-round application for submission, hopefully in November 2016. It also means that development funding of £31,700 has been awarded by the Heritage Lottery Fund which will, in tandem with our own fund-raising, allow us to develop detailed design drawings and cost plans and many other detailed proposals which will support our second-round application.

Robyn Llewellyn, Head of Heritage Lottery Fund East of England, said: “We are delighted that, thanks to National Lottery players, we are able to support this fascinating project to share, teach and preserve the skill of change ringing. This new space will encourage a new and varied audience to learn about this often underappreciated art, and help protect this significant part of the country’s cultural heritage.”

Thank you all for your support in the many ways that is has been given in getting us to this stage, we really do appreciate it. We still have a long way to go and we will need your encouragement and support in the coming months. Watch out for news of exciting events coming up!

We are very grateful for the support of the above organisations and many more individuals
