New heritage fund will support WW1 commemorative projects
To mark the centenary year of the First World War armistice, Breckland Council has set up a fund to support local organisations and communities who wish to stage events and develop projects that explore, share and conserve the heritage of the War in the district.
The new 'Breckland World War One Heritage Fund' provides grants of up to £500 to support a wide range of projects. This could include documenting the war through film or audio recordings, collecting personal stories and memories of those affected by the war, staging exhibitions, producing books or organising talks.
Paul Claussen, Breckland Council Executive Member for Place said: "Marking this centenary reminds us all of the terrible consequences of war and the sacrifices made. We have a duty to honour the brave servicemen who fought and died in the conflict, and the families they left behind. We hope that by supporting local communities to develop their own commemorative projects, the memories and the lessons learned will pass on to future generations. This is the most fitting tribute we can make."
The fund is now closed.
