Gulliford Burial Ground wall repairs and Heritage Lottery application
Work is now underway at the Dissenters Burial Ground to repair the wall which fell down at the end of last year. The two Parish Councils, the Joint Gulliford Burial Ground Committee and the Friends of Gulliford Burial Ground are working together to do its best to accomplish all the works needed to preserve this lovely site into the future. One of the ways we are doing this is to create a working group to apply to the Heritage Lottery Fund for a grant to preserve this important history site and to raise awareness that it exists.
We’ve been working hard already and have created a questionnaire which will soon land through your doors which will give us more information about how many people know where it is, have visited it and about general views on how important you feel local history is. Please look out for this questionnaire and we will be very grateful if you could fill it in and drop it into the Clerk’s office or to Londis where there is a box for replies. Alternatively, we have produced an interactive Google form which is easy to use and can be accessed via the link below ;

It can also be accessed via the Woodbury and Lympstone Parish websites or via the Friends of Gulliford Burial Ground website at www.fogbg.org.uk
If anyone has prior experience of applying to the HLF and can volunteer to give us any time to advise us on writing our application, we would be very pleased to hear from you. Feel free to ring Jane Moffatt on 07730877889.
