An application to the Charles Hayward Foundation for a grant of £3,000 to restore the Fra Newbery paintings in Bridport Town Hall has been successful.  The Trust submitted the application to support the Town Hall Restoration Project.  The highly successful “Newbery Trail” project in April 2008, with exhibitions in Bridport and across Dorset, acted as a springboard for both the Town Hall Restoration Project and the campaign to restore the Literary and Scientific Institute, which played an important part in the distinguished career of Fra Newbery.
