Our project reached an important milestone last month, with Warwick District Council (Executive and Planning) approving our current submission to the Heritage Lottery Fund for £900,000, including the removal of the listed bandstand for repair and restoration off site. Although the approval was expected, it’s great to have confirmation that we can proceed with the application as planned.
The deadline for submission to the Heritage Lottery Fund is 31 August, and then we’ll be keeping our fingers crossed until we hear the result in early January 2016!
The Warwickshire Pride event last month was a great success, with a range of stalls and entertainment provided by a variety of acts such as the Sambassadors of Groove (pictured).
Coming up next month is one of the biggest events in Leamington’s calendar: the Leamington Food & Drink Festival! Taking place on the weekend of 5-6 September, the festival will feature over 150 stalls, cookery classes and much more!
