Heritage Lottery Fund We have just submitted an initial application for a heritage lottery fund bid. We are applying to the Heritage Lottery Fund for an award that will enable us to complete the next phase of the revitalisation of Burgess Park.
The Heritage Lottery Fund gives grants to sustain and transform our heritage. There are two opportunities below to find out more about these plans. If successful this will enable us to restore the Bridge to Nowhere and bring the history of the Surrey Canal to life through new planting, play equipment and interpretation signage.
We will also be refurbishing the buildings at Chumleigh Gardens in order to provide museum space and classrooms to enable us to offer a whole range of heritage and horticultural training, schools activities and adult learning.
Finally we can fund a programme of heritage related events, festivals and creative workshops. The decision as to whether we have been successful will be announced in March 2014. For more information about the fund visit http://www.hlf.org.uk/.
Christmas wreath making
On Friday 13 December at Art in the Park we'll be making Christmas wreaths followed by a celebration of the Christmas tree at Chumleigh Gardens. Pop down and sing some carols and enjoy a glass of mulled wine.
On Saturday 14 and Sunday 15 we'll be hosting a Christmas market at the Camberwell Road entrance to the park. If you'd like to have a stall please email the markets team.
