Grants awarded to the NHIG

We have recently received grants from the following organisations for projects in progress. We are immensely grateful for their invaluable support, without which this important work would not be possible.

The Ironmongers’ Company and The Radcliffe Trust towards NHIG WORKING PARTIES pilot scheme

The Arts Society and York Foundation for Conservation & Craftsmanship towards NHIG FILMS

The Leche Trust towards a guidance publication on Writing Specifications for Heritage Ironwork

The Aurelius Charitable Trust and the Lord Faringdon Charitable Trust towards a guidance publication on Colour finishes to heritage ironwork.

Additionally, Eastlake & Beachell have once again sponsored NHIG’s operating insurance. E&B, who have strong ties to the blacksmithing and farriers’ community, have supported NHIG in this way since its inception. Initiatives like this which help to keep our running costs low are much appreciated as they enable us to focus our resources on the areas that matter most.
