Focus Consultants has helped to secure a major Heritage
Lottery Fund (HLF) grant which will play a key part in showcasing the heritage
of an historic Norfolk town. 
Experts at Focus supported the Borough Council of King’s
Lynn & West Norfolk in its successful second round bid to the HLF, which
resulted in a grant of £1,850,600 being awarded for improvements in the
historic quarter of King’s Lynn. 
The grant is part of a cash injection of just under £5million which will fund two
exciting projects that will enhance the King’s Lynn St Margaret’s Conservation
Area, remodel the Saturday Market Place and restore the town hall complex as a
centre for the cultural life of the town. 
Focus has now been appointed to project manage the delivery
of the Stories of Lynn project – a scheme to bring to life the stories
of local people documented in the town’s impressive archive. King’s Lynn was
once a port of medieval importance, and the project will enable the story of
the town’s civic, social, economic and political life to be told.  
“We were very pleased to hear about the successful Heritage
Lottery Fund bid, which Focus helped the council to develop and submit, and are
now looking forward to bringing the ideas and plans to life,” said Mike Lee,
associate at Focus Consultants. “The whole scheme will showcase King’s Lynn’s
rich history, improve public access and will rejuvenate that area of the town.” 
Work is expected to begin early next year. 
The grant application is the latest in a string of
successful applications supported by Focus, which is based at Phoenix Business
Park, in Nottingham and has offices in Holborn, London, Leicester, Boston and
Aubourn in Lincolnshire. 
Since being founded 20 years ago, in 1994, the firm has helped to secure more than £925 million of
grant assistance for a range of projects and businesses across the UK
and delivered more than £1.0 billion worth of projects and programmes – making
it one of the most successful businesses of its kind in the country.
