TOP THREE POINTS OF THE MEETING – 8th May 2017

Trustees’ update

  • Friends of Friar Gate Bridge (FFGB) continues to work towards submitting a bit to the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) for a project scoping grant, and have started to receive quotations for work that could be carried out under the grant.
  • The trustees have recently undertaken a review of how we manage ourselves as an organisation.  Although active volunteers are currently few, we need to operate effectively and make sensible plans to grow our resources.  The review will help us to use our scoping project to get into a position where we can demonstrate to the HLF and other funders that we are resilient enough to see the project through.
  • We are continuing to have discussions with other heritage-related organisations that might help us financially or with advice.
