Chris and Lindsey led the final ‘pre-feasibility’ workshop for the Arts & Crafts Awakening project – fourteen people came.
Chris first went through the duties of those who have become directors of the Arts & Crafts Trust. We then learnt about the new THI manager, Sue Oakley, who has been running the Keighley THI in recent years. We discussed the new plan to restore the Edgar Wood Centre buildings in phases aligned with new uses as well as Heritage Open Days and a beer festival in September.
We are now reading through the 90 page draft report!
Our next meeting will be at 7.30pm on 23rd July. We will be concentrating on the summer events such as Golden Cluster Month and Heritage Open Days, two new trails for Middleton town centre and the broader strategy for Middleton’s Heritage.
