The first post of the New Year and hopefully a year which will see the Harwich Mayflower Project start the ship build.
I received an email from a Harwich resident over the Christmas period which advised me that I should have mentioned the ‘positives’ of the Harwich Mayflower Project in the last year while making my End of Year Post. Specifically the fact that the Project won tens of thousands of pounds in funding from the local council to build their new visitor centre.
I am of course happy to put the record straight and would like to use this post to congratulate the Harwich Mayflower project on securing the funds from the local council, which I’m sure were hotly contested with other well deserving charities in the area.
I would also like to take this opportunity to congratulate the latest December appointments to the Mayflower Project board of directors. Mr. Fred Nicholls, who was previously chairman of the local council and Mr Robert Day, who was also a member of the local council.
I hope these new additions to the board of directors will help steer the project to much prosperity and the multiple millions of funding that one would assume is needed to progress the build.
Finally, a belated Happy New Year to all my readers. Once again thank you for all your kind words and supportive mail over 2016. It’s much appreciated.
