Good News for Mrs Smith's Cottage!
The Heritage Lottery Fund has approved funding to repair and restore the Cottage museum. £187,000 will be released this year to remove the roof and assess the full extent of repairs needed and to establish the complete project of renovation. A further £407,000 will be applied for in 2017 to complete the work. The project commitment goes well beyond the cost of the roof alone and will allow the cottage, the displays and the marketing programme to be completely renewed.
