The Chamberlain Highbury Trust has for the third time failed in its bid to the Heritage Lottery Fund to restore Highbury Hall to its former glories in a celebration of Birmingham’s first and foremost political family the Chamberlain’s, Joseph and sons Austen and Neville…….keep on keeping on, we will succeed eventually in this #BidforBirmingham
|Unfortunately, for the third time, our application for a grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund has failed. On this occasion ours was one of 47 applications, of which only 7 were successful.The HLF had just £16 million to distribute amongst these applicants at its Board meeting in December; the sum of all the applications amounted to £123 million!
As Joseph Chamberlain himself said, “If we fail, let us try again and again until we succeed.”
The trustees are setting aside a day in January to consider a range of alternative options for taking the project forward.We’ll keep you updated….
