WORK HAS NOW STARTED ON THE CONSERVATION AND DEVELOPMENT OF THE PRIORY CHURCH
3rd June 2009 - ANNUAL REUNION
It was the 10th Anniversary of the opening of St James House ……
It was the 13th Anniversary of the opening of Walsingham House ……
There was a very good turnout and again it was extremely rewarding to see the progress that individuals have made……
We even had the pleasure of the company of the very first resident of Walsingham House who came in on 3rd June 1996.
One resident took my hand and shook it and said…” Thank you for saving my life ..”
When I started to dispute this he held my hand tighter and said ….” No ....you really did save my life…”
Some of those who attended..
Many thanks to Lyn & Graham who shared their stories of recovery.
Many thanks also to Pauline & Kerryn et al for the glorious food!!
HERITAGE LOTTERY FUND AWARD
UPDATE 30th MARCH 2009
The Heritage Lottery Foundation confirmed today the award of £3 million pounds towards the renovation, conservation and development of the Priory Church. This follows the second stage of the application.
Dame Jenny Abramsky, Chair of the Heritage Lottery Fund, said: “During these tough economic times we still need to enjoy the things which enrich the quality of our daily lives – whether it’s a beautiful garden, a gallery full of wonderful paintings or a much-loved historic building. Today’s substantial lottery investment demonstrates that heritage is as much about the future as the past.”
Work will now begin in July 2009.
INVESTOR IN PEOPLE AWARD
The Project was re-assessed on March 5th 2009 and was found to "continue to comply with the requirements of the Investors in People standard."
This was good news as it re-affirmed the Project's goal of investing in staff and volunteers and validating the quality of the Project.
" The St James Priory Project has gone from strength to strength since the last review. "

10th ANNIVERSARY CELEBRATION - 3RD JUNE 2006
On this day in 1996 Walsingham House opened. Since then over 1500 people have been assessed and almost 800 admitted for treatment and support.
In 1999 St James House was opened on the same date.
Almost 200 people gathered to celebrate on a gloriously sunny day. Ex-residents, staff and volunteers mixed with supporters and benefactors.
Bishop Mervyn Alexander (now retired), who opened both Houses, was able to attend.
The afternoon was a marvellous celebration of the Project which has grown from small beginnings to become a well respected local and national resource for supporting and treating people with addictions.
Thanks to all who attended or helped in any way.
It really was good to meet up with all those people who had an association with the Project.
