National Lottery Heritage Fund Stage one application submitted

Having had our Expression of interest accepted by the London and South Panel of the National Lottery Heritage Fund in June 2023, we announced at our Annual General Meetings on Saturday 29th June 2024 that we met the deadline and submitted our highly detailed Stage One application that comprised of an over 20,000 word application along with 93 separate supporting documents. This application has been completed along with our strategic application partners; our restoration home, The Swindon and Cricklade Railway, and our planned home for main line running The Yeovil Railway Centre.

We hope to learn if we have been successful with the application to move making a Stage Two – development application in late September 2024.

Further details on the application will be with the next issue of our members magazine The Packet, if you are not already a member, for details on how to join and click here.
