The Lincolnshire Heritage at Risk Project is now complete, so this website is closed.
Thank you to those who came to our ‘End of project celebration’ at Normanby Hall on 7th June. It was a lovely sunny afternoon with a cream tea and tour of the hall; the perfect way to celebrate the end of the project and Volunteers’ Week!
We were pleased to say thank you in person for all the hard work our volunteers have carried out surveying the North and North East Lincolnshire heritage assets.
Representatives from North and North East Lincolnshire were present and were very impressed with the amount of work done and the fact that there were only 43 surveys left to do out of the 3,541 assets. We will now be preparing a report for them after analysing the collected data.
Liz Bates (Heritage Lincolnshire CEO) gave a speech thanking everyone and saying that the project would not have been possible without the help and time of volunteers.
The information gathered in the previous project is already being put to use by helping to create local lists and bringing the most at risk assets to the councils attention. It has also helped several ‘at risk’ churches unlock funding for repairs and community engagement, so the potential for these project results is great.
