“I love Grange Court. I met a man there once who hit me with a trout. We ended up getting married!”
This story, and many others besides, reflect the central place of Grange Court
in the history and community of Leominster, Herefordshire.
We were appointed to prepare an Interpretation Plan for Grange Court to support a HLF application. In preparing the plan we ran consultation workshops with community groups including young people, people with disabilities (mostly learning disabled), and Bridge Street Buddies – a group of young mums from a disadvantaged part of town. We also consulted on our draft proposals with a stall in the market square – complete with t-shirts and balloons to make more of a splash.
We were then commissioned to help prepare the Activity Plan and Action Plan and meet the HLF case officer in support of the Stage 2 application. The outcome was a grant award and an interpretive scheme with a strong sense of local awareness and ownership.
