Stirchley baths meeting re heritage lottery fund
Half the meeting

Yesterday there was a “stage” meeting about the final and full bid to the Heritage Lottery Fund (to be submitted in June 2013).  A good few people there who’ve been involved in some area of work creating or supporting the bid.  As much as anything it was a chance for the Heritage Lottery Team and the bid team to catch up on progress.  The picture is of one half of the meeting.

Afterwards I spent a few minutes with Peter Morgan from the West Midlands team of the Heritage Lottery Fund.  He explained how these meetings help – what will happen next and what happens to the bid after the June deadline for submitting.

  • The “stage” meeting help clarify that the bid writing and community engagement process is on track.  It helps everyone focus on creating the best quality bid.
  • Once submitted in June the bid will be assigned an officer who will read is and write a report
  • The report will be checked for quality within the system then submitted to the ctte for decision
  • The ctte read the report and are given a presentation by the officer.  They then decide based on this information and other bids in that month.  Ctte members are volunteers.
