SMH wins £10000 National Lottery grant

Last summer we began the process of applying to the National Lottery for a grant to help us with the installation of a new emergency lighting and emergency exit system for the Hall as well as a fire alarm system. Our first attempt was rejected on the basis that we had not properly consulted the community.

We didn't give up and organised a consultation via personal contacts, events, an article in the Tempsford Times and our Facebook page. We resubmitted our application at the end of January 2018.

We are delighted to announce the we have recently heard that we have been awarded a grant for the full amount requested of £10000. 

We hope to start work in mid-summer and have the work completed by early autumn.

Many thanks go to the National Lottery and to all those villagers who supported us in our grant application. We'll keep you updated with progress
