WITH one year to go until the centenary to mark the beginning of the First World War, Moray MP Angus Robertson is urging his constituents to consider applying to the Heritage Lottery Fund for community projects.
Mr Robertson said the Heritage Lottery Fund is making at least £1 million available, until 2019, as part of its ‘First World War: then and now’ programme for small community grants.
The group will provide grants of £3,000 to £10,000, Mr Robertson said.
Projects that could receive money, according to the MP, could relate to: researching, identifying and recording local heritage; creating a community archive or collection; developing new interpretation of heritage through exhibitions, trails or smartphone apps; researching, writing and performing creative material based on heritage sources; or conserving and finding out more about war memorials.
