Grant Approved for No 18 High Street
A grant made possible thanks to National Lottery players has been awarded through the Wisbech High Street Project to enable improvement works to an historic Wisbech high street building.
Mr Neil Bullen, who owns No.18 High Street, has been working with the Wisbech High Street Project officer over the last year to secure a grant which will assist with roof repairs, new windows, a replacement door, redecoration of the façade and a new sign.
Mr Bullen’s grant will enable him to undertake works that will improve the character and appearance of No.18 in line with the conservation area guidance.
The signage will be replaced with something more appropriate to the age and appearance of the building and materials proposed for the windows and replacement door will be in timber. Essential roof repairs and redecoration of the façade will ensure the building remains watertight and protected for years to come.
It is expected that the works will commence in the springtime when weather conditions have improved.
Mr Bullen, whose family also runs and owns “Evisons” next door has also had a grant request approved for repairs to that building too. Further information to follow.
