East Church Awarded Heritage Lottery Fund Stage Two Pass
The Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) has announced the award of a full grant of £641,000 for the SRCT’s project to repair, conserve, and regenerate Cromarty’s historic East Church. The confirmation, in the form of a Stage Two pass, follows on from the Stage One pass awarded in early 2007 which required further detailed project information to be submitted for approval.
Confirmation of the award gives the green light to work beginning at the church in the spring, and also for the recruitment of a locally-based Communities & Education Officer. The post-holder will be responsible for organising and running events, training and activities associated with the project, and will work closely with the community to ensure that local people are involved, consulted, and kept up to date with everything happening at the East Church.
