It was a pleasure to join Hounslow Heritage and Fund-raising Officers in welcoming a visit from HLF representatives in early November. The decision on our application for funds for developing an “exhibition garden” (telling the history of the site), with an elegant new building for learning and events in one corner, takes place on 30 November. If approved, this will bring in over £1 million towards the scheme, supporting a significant contribution from Hounslow Council, the sole trustee of the Hogarth’s House Trust.

The William Hogarth Trust has submitted numerous bids to many small charities to seek further support for the project and is delighted to report that so far grants have been offered by the Finnis Scott Trust, the Stanley Smith (UK) Horticultural Trust, the Sylvia Waddilove Foundation (UK) and the Country Houses Foundation.
