We were delighted to welcome our Lord Mayor & Lady Mayoress to Seekers conference on March 5th, 2020 @1851 Trust, INEOS Team UK, Portsmouth. A year ago we managed to secure funding from the National Lottery Heritage Fund for two of our projects

We decided to celebrate in style and invited a super mix of people to join our conference trail adventure!

Our guests got to meet our team of contributors to hear about our current and future projects.
February 2020 4 young people went on a tour of the 1851 Trust who are based in Ineos, located just a short walk from Portsmouth Sailing Club. The group along with Clair Martin, walked from Gunwharf Academy having been briefed. We followed the Millennium Promenade Trail. Following a tour of the building the 1851 Trust very kindly offered us use of their space to host our mid point conference. We were delighted!
