Saving the George

Latest News - February 2020

In December, the Management Committee issued Invitations to Tender to nine Project Management consultancies and after a period of Tender assessment, we are pleased to report that Greenwood Projects has been successfully appointed.


An inaugural meeting was held between the Management Committee and the Greenwood Projects team on the 24th February and work has now commenced to assist the Society to appoint the other consultants necessary for us to prepare a detailed design for reconstruction and other documents necessary for us to make our Round 2 Heritage Fund application. They will then lead our professional team, potentially until The George re-opens.


We are also in the process of submitting applications for partnership funding to the Architectural Heritage Fund, Suffolk County Council and East Suffolk Council. We are also finalising a programme of fundraising events for 2020, which we hope you will support as enthusiastically as you did our ‘Celebration’ in October.
