Jo Swinson MP for East Dunbartonshire is encouraging constituents to apply to the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) First World War: then and now programme which provides grants of £3,000 to £10,000 for communities to mark the Centenary of the First World War.
HLF is making at least £1million a year available until 2019 for small, community grants. The grants of between £3,000 and £10,000 will enable groups across the UK to explore, conserve and share their First World War heritage and deepen their understanding of the impact of the conflict.
Commenting Jo said:
“I’m delighted that the Heritage Lottery Fund is making this money available to local communities. Like many areas across the UK, the impact of the First World War on the people of East Dunbartonshire was far reaching.
“Anyone who wants to explore the continuing legacy of the war, and to help young people in particular broaden their understanding of how it has shaped our modern world, should visit http://www.hlf.org.uk/ThenAndNow
