Using our Heritage to Shape the Future

Meet Gladys Wenderforth

Gladys WenderforthGladys is a character we’ve created to help us communicate useful snippets of information about the Gower and the work done by the Management group and others.

Gladys has lived in St George’s all her life.  She remembers the Gower as the Board School and is now a key member of the Friends of The Gower.

Like a lot of people she is sad that years of neglect has resulted in the eye sore we see on a daily basis. She knows that some people suggest it should be demolished but the Friends see a future with the Gower building back in use and an asset to the community of St George’s.

She’s glad that the Management group submitted a bid to the Heritage Lottery Fund for money to carry out work to restore the building back to it’s former glory. Fingers are crossed and we are all hopeful that it is successful so we can progress to the next stage in the process.

In the meantime, she says, “I encourage everyone who cares about St George’s and the Gower to get involved.  We need help and support from the local community and businesses.  People can do this in many ways from simply becoming a Friend to joining the Management group and a lot else besides. Come on.  Get involved!
