A community project doesn't just happen - it needs an incredible amount of dedication, time and support to achieve its goals. The 'Tapestry' community project has been blessed with an amazing amount of support.
Financial support has come from the National Lottery Heritage Fund and the Elim Estuary Church Group. Without this funding, none of the Tapestry would exist, so our huge thanks go to these two groups.
Rochford District Council (RDC) have provided considerable support including marketing, provision of calico and other materials.
Then there are the people and other organisations who've been involved...it's been difficult to identify all the organisations that have publicised and supported the community project but we have gathered the list below of individuals who have taken part - artists, historians, embroiderers, knitters, photographers, researchers, organisers, framers, web/app experts, administrators, publicity, premises, coffee makers, cake makers …all essential for a successful community project. We hope that we’ve included everyone!
