Funding is naturally an essential and vital ingredient! Rochford Town Team had previously been awarded a grant from the National Lottery Heritage Fund, so this was again the first port of call.
The Town Team formed a project working group to oversee the bid and fortunately we were successful.
We also needed a venue to host the workshops for making the tapestry. The Estuary Elim Church Group kindly offered the use of their premises and also agreed to help fund this Community Project.
Huge thanks go to both the National Lottery Heritage Fund and the Estuary Elim Church Group.
