The Heritage Lottery Fund confirmed a grant award of £1,873,300 in December 2016. The grant will fund our vision to revitalise Caledonian Park and secure the future of its clock tower.
What happens next?
Design work will begin in January 2017 and we expect that site works will start in late summer to early autumn for completion in Summer 2018.
The objectives are to:
- carry out essential repairs to the clock tower
- make access improvements so the tower can be opened to the public on a regular basis
- repair and restore the original market railings that survive along the park boundaries to Market Road and Shearling Way
- build a small heritage centre with space for community and education activities as well as a café and public toilets
- develop a programme of activities, training and volunteer opportunities to encourage greater use of the park and community involvement.
There are some great opportunities to volunteer at Caledonian Park in a range of capacities including gardening, clock tower stewarding, developing interpretation material and assisting with delivery of the formal and informal learning programme.
If you are able to spare two hours or more on an occasional or regular basis, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
