GRANTS of up to £10,000 are being offered for community projects which mark next year’s centenary of the start of the First World War.
The Heritage Lottery Fund is coming to Chatteris on Thursday to hold one-to-one sessions with people to discuss their ideas and give advice about its various funding schemes.
Grants of between £3,000 and £10,000 are available through its “First World War: then and now” programme.
Rachel Fuller, the HLF East of England’s development officer, said: “Heritage can mean lots of different things and we want to encourage an imaginative, creative approach.
“We’re looking for all sorts of projects that engage people in their particular communities and help them learn more about the nature of the war and the impact it had on their local area. We’re particularly keen to get young people involved.”
