Community Heritage Questionnaire appeal

St. Margaret’s Church, Hollingsworth Road,  Lowestoft

Heritage Activities

In order to apply for a significant grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund to help meet the enormous cost of urgent repair work to the church and the replacement of its elderly heating system, we have to plan ‘Heritage Activities’ which will involve the local community and bring a lasting change to the area.  As part of this we need to complete a ‘Community Audit’ – involving contacting as many people and organisations as possible, explaining what we plan to do, asking for their support, and hopefully obtaining letters of support.  This whole procedure will form an essential part of our application.

Please will you rate the following in the order you feel would be best,            and give your name and postcode so we can indicate the wide area we have tried to cover.  Could you then save it to your computer and e-mail it to
