Things are moving. Again. Last week Sue Dawson and I had a good meeting with Antonia, our Heritage Lottery officer, in Millom. We were delighted that Antonia was keen to visit Millom and see No 14 for herself. As well as giving her a tour of the house we visited St George's Church, and saw the Nicholson 'miner' memorial in Market Square. Yesterday Janice Brockbank and myself met up to review our application to the HLF which will be submitted next week. Bernard, our accountant, is going over the financial figures as I write. The task right now is to transfer our case from a much-revised Word document to the HLF's online portal - so I'm signing off the blog for now to do just that.
