Outcomes for the Communities
CC3. With our investment environmental impacts will be reduced
CC3.1. Mark from the HLF advise we could say we will source out building materials from local business, this reduces the environmental impacts and helps boost the economy.
CC1. With our investment more people and a wider range of people will have engaged with heritage
CC1.2 I think we need to explain we already have quite a diverse audience with our attraction being for the whole family, but with all the other successful applications I have read they have a big emphasis on more volunteers and invited schools. I think it would be great to also add a section about getting more of the local community to visit it being as there is a perception locals are not aware of the railway. (MH) 07.12.17
CC1.1I think if we could put more effort behind our youth group. Organise 3 days a year when local school can visit for the day. Maybe we could offer a free trip for the elderly from local nursing homes. If they have stories about the railway we could record them and use them at the museum? (MH) 07.12.17
CC5. With our investment your organisation will be more resilient
(Description of activity) Your organisation will have greater capacity to withstand threats and to adapt to changing circumstances to give you a secure future. You will achieve this greater resilience through stronger governance and greater local involvement in your organisation; increased management and staff skills; fresh sources of expertise and advice; and working in partnership to share services, staff and resources.
CC5.1. We need to evidence this by You might have new volunteers who increase your capacity and skills. So we need to have a clear idea of the roles the project will create. It might be an idea to appoint a 'commercial volunteer to report into management'.
CC5.3. We need to evidence new sources of income through commercial activity, this should be relatively easy, but we will need someone with commercial experience, or invite someone from a visitor attraction with a shop/museum who can advise.
CC5.2. Does this project help us allow us to apply for further endowments or new fundraising programmes? If so we need to identify this to show resilience
CC7. By collecting and analysing information about the people who engage with your heritage – and those who don’t – before, during and after your project.
CC7.1. Community consultation, do we have any recent surveys? If not I can create a survey via Survey Monkey and send it out to all our customers that we have email address for. We can also survey our volunteers. I think we will need to spend a day in a local village conducting a survey to find out why people do not engage with the railway.
CC8. You will be able to show that your audience profile has changed; for example, it includes people from a wider range of ages, ethnicities and social backgrounds; more disabled people; or groups of people who have never engaged with your heritage before.
CC8.1. We need to conduct a survey to work out who are current audience is. Then we will use the computerised table and electronic surveys to see if our audience is wider. I think inviting in schools, the disabled and the elderly on special days for them will make a difference (MH 08.02.17)
CC6. Local residents will have a better quality of life and overall the area will be more attractive. As a result of improving the appearance of heritage sites or of the opportunities you have provided for local people to visit, use, get involved with, and enjoy heritage, residents will report that they feel greater pride in the local area and/or have a stronger sense of belonging.
CC6.3. Market Bosworth has a number of notable visitor attraction, the battle fields, the water park, the canals, by increasing the professional provision will compliment the local attractions.
CC6.1. Pride - Need some wording
CC6.4. We should report the number of volunteer we have and how we hope to grow this number with our improved opportunities, school trips and so on.
CC6.2. Community members will report a greater sense of shared understanding and a better sense of getting on with each other. Communication is a big issue with the railway, with promoting events and talking to one another. I believe quarterly meeting are required inviting all volunteers. The meetings will be minuted to evidence shared understanding and stronger sense of belonging. (MH 08.02.17)
CC6.2.1. Visitors to your heritage project will also tell you that the area has improved as a direct result of the project, as well as what they value about it. Surveys as menttioned in C?
CC2. At the end of your project you will report on the resources used. You will also be able to demonstrate a reduction in carbon emissions generated by your site.
CC2.1. As mentioned before we will source locally to reduce carbon emissions and record all purchases and suppliers.
CC4. With our investment your local economy will be boosted
CC4.1. Increased visitors means we need more supplies from local suppliers, if we could forge a link with other attraction then they will create business for them too potentially creating jobs and training opportunites
