As you may have seen in the local press or online, the TayLP bid for Heritage Lottery Funding was successful. £1.4 million was awarded, and it is anticipated that matched funding from various sources will add about another £1 million.

 Development Officers Johanna Babbs and Catriona Davies did a great job of putting the bid together, but now the delivery phase will be in the hands of 5 individuals, who may just have been appointed by the time you read this. These will be a Scheme Manager, along with 3 Project Officers to cover the historical environment, access & diversity and learning & interpretation, plus a part-time volunteer co-ordinator.

 Abernethy features specifically in 2 of the 28 projects--Ancient Abernethy and The Story of Abernethy, although other projects will also impinge on our area. Beginning this month the entire scheme will run for about 4 years. See http://taylp.org/index.php for details.
