ISLAND MP Bob Seely is urging community groups and others on the Island to apply for Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) grants to explore and conserve heritage dating from the First World War.
The fund is encouraging people to apply for grants of between £3,000 and £10,000 to help pay for projects exploring the impact and legacy of the war beyond 1918 for its First World War: Then and Now initiative.
Topics can be broad in range from looking at the role the war played in bringing about universal suffrage, the introduction of daylight saving or the mechanisation of agriculture.
Mr Seely said: “There is a wealth of local stories waiting to be explored about life following the war that really should be told as we reach the 100th anniversary of the end of the conflict.
“The IW has an incredibly rich history and the Island we live on today was shaped by the First World War, so I strongly encourage people to make use of the money available from HLF to explore its legacy further.”
The money is available through HLF’s community grants programme at www.hlf.org.uk.
