New Client; Crafting the future

We are delighted to be working with Crafting the Future, a townscape heritage project in Padiham, Lancashire. Padiham is an old textile town, and home to Gawthorpe Hall, a National Trust property, an Elizabethan Country House, which contains a world renowned textile collection. The high street in Padiham is missing some wonderful heritage features and we are working with Burnley Borough Council who are restoring some of the high street heritage to this textile town.

The Evaluator is working with the project on a mid term review, to help the team understand the impact they have had so far, and how to make data-driven-decisions for the future. We are exploring impacts on shoppers, residents, businesses and local organisations. We look forward to weaving all the experiences together and unpicking the knowledge and impact of the programme so far. Then we will sew it all back up, and present the information back to the project team. A mid-term review is a chance to think about improvements and to shape the next elements of the project. It’s always great to work with projects at this stage.

Here at The Evaluator, it is mostly business as usual, in this case we have planned a project which is entirely remotely workable and this will all happen during Covid-19 restrictions.
