Heritage Lottery Fund Grants for Local Projects

Jason recently joined Fiona Spiers, Head of the Heritage Lottery Fund for Yorkshire and Humber, on a trip to meet volunteers and organisers at the Colne Valley Museum in Golcar.

The popular local attraction has been granted a Heritage Lottery Grant worth £50,000 for their “Realising the Dream” project which will see it expand into the whole row of cottages at Cliffe Ash.

He also met Peter Turner, Chairman of the Friends of Beaumont Park, to see where the new Band Stand will soon be taking shape. This project received £182,500 from the Heritage Lottery Fund.

Jason said aftewards, “These are two valued and treasured community assets being enhanced by local volunteers, now the Heritage Lottery cash will help them achieve their dreams. The Heritage Lottery Fund will have an extra £19million for grants next year and an extra £50 million the year after and I’ll be doing all I can to encourage local groups and organisations to apply.”
