Good news: North Hertfordshire District Council’s Letchworth Area Committee has met in full our application for £400 to publicise and enhance our Finale in mid November 2012! The Committee especially liked our project’s focus on innovation, opportunity, industry and bringing all sectors together in a local initiative. The two parts of the funding are as follows:
- £300 for publicity in the local press, to supplement coverage in the Letchworth Arts Centre’s Festival programme and in the Broadway Cinema’s coverage of the Awards event.
- £100 for an incentive for modelling, especially if a civic or other public or community premises can be finished to a professional standard.
Several councillors expresses their keenness on the project in terms of young people taking part, engagement with high-technology companies and the showcasing industries of the future. Nick Gill, the reporter for The Comet local newspaper, was present and wishes to work up a feature article in early October.
This grant funding will enable us to boost publicity for the showcase/finale and to celebrate the presence of the District Council in Letchworth.
