Hi

Re the funding application we made, sad to say we didn't get it.  Huge
thanks to Doc and Hibby for co-writing it, I think it was a good
application put together in a very short period of time. The work done this
time round should be useful for future applications, so it's a good
foundation to build on.  We got some useful and constructive feedback, so
that'll help too.

There is more info, including the submission and feedback letter at
https://wiki.57north.org.uk/index.php/Funding_Applications

I plan to keep an eye out for other funding options for the space, but give
a shout out if you see anything interesting along these lines.

Cheers

Andy
