Southgate MP David Burrowes has urged the community to take part in local projects next year to mark 100 years since the First World War
With a year to go until the centenary of the First World War, Southgate MP David Burrowes has urged for more community projects to apply for funding.
Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) is making at least £1million available each year until 2019 for community projects educating people and researching into the Great War.
Grants between £3,000 and £10,000 will be allocated and the MP is advocating projects to research local heritage from the war and create a community archive amongst other schemes.
He said: “Like many areas across the UK, the impact of the First World War on the people of Enfield Southgate was extensive. For those who want find out more about its legacy or who wish to mark the Centenary, I would urge them to get in touch with HLF.”
Heritage Lottery Fund chairman Dame Jenny Abramsky said: “The impact of the First World War was far reaching, touching and shaping every corner of the UK and beyond. The Heritage Lottery Fund’s new programme will enable communities to explore the continuing legacy of this war and help young people in particular to broaden their understanding of how it has shaped our modern world.”
