Progress Reports

Mon 30th July – The Appeal has been successfully launched with many people in Wivenhoe already supporting it.

More than £20,000 has been raised in the first few weeks of the Appeal. This is in addition to the earlier Appeal for funds towards the costs of completing the planning application. Whilst good progress is being made on this front, there is still much work to do. Applications to grant-making trusts can only begin when we are further down this road of approvals.
In the meantime, it is the case that the more local support we can evidence for the Transformation Project, the stronger our chances of successful bids. Please click here to see how you can support the Appeal too.
Peter Hill, Chairman, the Transformation Project Appeal team.

Sat 5 May 2018 – The Appeal for £375,000 for the Transformation Project officially launched.

The St Mary’s Transformation Project Appeal was officially launched on Saturday in St Mary’s with the Bishop of Colchester, the Right Rev Roger Morris attending and our MP Bernard Jenkin who also came.
Bernard later tweeted:  Tremendous project for the whole of Wivenhoe! I’m on board! There were lots of people in evidence during the afternoon.  Town Mayor, Cllr Mike Newton, also came later to express his support for the Project.
