Update from The Ericht Trust

13th Mar 2014


The Hiil Project

A Heritage and Cultural Experience in East Perthshire 

The Ericht Trust has opened communications with Heritage Lottery for a funding application, the success of which would allow us to take forward the Hill Project. After detailed and searching correspondence between the Board and the Lottery's Development Manager, a visit was arranged for her to discuss things further and to visit the site.

She spent several hours with members of the Board and the Trust's Development Director Alfie Iannetta. We now wait for her considered reply before submitting a formal application to Heritage Lottery soon.

The Probable Cost Exercise , which has taken several months to complete, is almost finalised. This figure is necessary to be able to approach prospective funders.

We shall be holding open sessions for members, press and the public towards the end of April. These sessions will allow everyone to see the proposed project in detail, the plans and drawings and probable costs.

 We will also be recruiting voluntary help to complete our skills matrix of working groups such as "The Cinema", " The Museum", Finance and Fundraisng, Arts and Crafts. Young People's activities etc.

Of interest Perth and Kinross Council's maintenance department has been attending to structural problems such as leaking roofs, broken windows and pigeon infestation in the old Hill Primary School's buildings. The Ericht Trust has been raising awareness of these problems with the Council for the last two years so it is gratifying to have some action at last.
