I'm surprised that neither of these have taken it on, though I guess Bletchley Park may be choosing to remain independent.

i suppose if anyone can, Bletchley Park will be the ones to break the complex structure of extracting money from the Heritage Lottery Fund.

Maybe they should set up a sideline that could be quite prifitable, claiming grants from the Heritage Lottery Fund on behalf of others !!!

For smart people they sure act dumb

To get lottery funding from these metrosexual political animals you likely have to send in blurb ticking all the boxes using the right buzzwords.

Simples!
