Heritage Lottery Fund support for local remembrance project in #Stannington

It is a pleasure for me to use the blog to confirm the investment by the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) over the years, allowing constituents to learn more about local heritage. This latest grant of £10,000 is based on the ‘Stannington Parish Centenary Festival of Remembrance’ project. This is a two year project, which will be researching and commemorating Stannington’s contribution to the First World War. This is a great opportunity for the people of Stannington and wider Northumberland to learn about their fallen war heroes. It is also a great pleasure that HFL have chosen to do funding in Northumberland, continuing their great work to protect Britain’s heritage. I look forward to seeing the positive results over the next two years.
