The George Eliot Fellowship Needs Your Help! (Click to collapse)

George Eliot Visitor Centre

The George Eliot Fellowship has submitted a Heritage Lottery Fund application to help build the proposed George Eliot Visitor Centre at Griff (see images below). They are trying to gain support from the public to persuade HLF that there is a real interest in the project among local people. Likes and shares of this will help - click here to help by "Liking" the page where you can also find images of the proposed location and design etc.

Even better - why not email them gevisitorcentre@gmail.com to make a comment. They will then keep you informed via email of the progress we are making. They hope it will be a long term legacy of the 2019 bicentenary celebrations we are planning for next year. They are not yet asking for money but they might need to find an additional £20K.
