Work Stephens House & Gardens HLF bid

Supporting our client to bid for Heritage Lottery Funding

When we started working with our client, the destination was named Avenue House and they were in the process of a Heritage Lottery bid. We needed to support them to engage with the community to gather feedback, fundraise to support the plans, and manage a brand and name change. 

Presenting regeneration plans

The plans to regenerate the house and gardens, bid for lottery funding, garner support and change the name to Stephens House & Gardens were presented in a set of rollup banners which operated as a moveable exhibition. 

Asking for support

Local support was key to making the bid and fulfilling plans which would work locally. 

Consultation days

Public consultation days were combined with fun activities in order to encourage families to come and take part. 

Gathering feedback

A number of events were organised and these spanned over the period of changing the site name from Avenue House to Stephens House & Gardens. The feedback cards demonstrate the shift over time of the branding.

100 in 100

As Stephens House & Gardens celebrates 100 years of the legacy to Finchley, it seemed a good time to raise funds for its future and ensure that it continues to be a haven in North London. We created a campaign graphic to celebrate and promote the anniversary.
