We will hear on the afternoon of Thursday, 15th September whether the Heritage Lottery Fund have awarded us the necessary £270,000 needed to complete the Chorley Remembers project.
A member of the HLF North West committee visited Chorley in mid-August to see some of the elements of the project, being shown the Chorley Pals Memorial, the Memorial Arch and Cenotaph in Astley Park, as well as seeing inside Astley Hall.
We are confident that our bid will be successful, as our project is acknowledged as being “well managed and representing value for money”.
Whilst we will be competing with other projects from across the region at the meeting on the 15th, Trustees are confident of success.
We will ‘Tweet’ the decision as soon as we have it!
