A six week long programme of events was run at the end of July and all through August. The Education Centre at Ham Hill Country Park was transformed into a mini museum and activity centre with free drop in activities every day for everyone to enjoy. A wide range of free activities were organised at the Education Centre and around Ham Hill.
The project was run as a trial to support a bid to the National Lottery’s Heritage Fund for Ham Hill. It was very successful: 2622 people participated across 42 days with 334 visitor surveys completed. There were 43 events across the period with 1424 children (and some adults) participating in the activities and sessions.
The Friends gained funding from the Fine Family Foundation, Stoke Sub Hamdon Sports & Recreation Trust , Norton Sub Hamdon Parish Council and Waitrose.
