Wymering Manor Trust Shortlisted for the People’s Millions 2013!!!
Our “Mind Your Manor” project has been shortlisted as part of the Big Lottery Fund and ITV’s People’s Millions Fund. The project plan is to renovate and refurbish the music room, kitchen and chapel areas of the Manor to be used as a community hub for local events and activities as well as a learning centre for training and volunteering opportunities.
We will be looking to involve the community in the project from the outset and are already working in partnership with the University of Portsmouth and Highbury College on the design of the scheme will continue to do so as the project develops.
We could receive up to £50,000 to make this happen, BUT, we need votes!
Check our Website, Facebook or Twitter pages or the Daily Mirror on Tuesday November 26th to get the phone number to place your vote! The number will only be given to us on the 26th and the lines to place your vote will only be open between 9am and midnight.
On Tuesday 26th a short film about “Mind Your Manor” will be broadcast on Meridian News highlighting in detail all that we aim to achieve for both the Manor and Local Community. Everything from essential repairs to make the Manor safe for community use and providing disabled access to the Victorian Wing to the provision of gardening equipment for our volunteer gardeners, and computer equipment for training programmes.
We need as many votes as possible to be in with a chance to win an award and you can call up to 10 times to vote for us!
