The Heritage Lottery Fund has launched a new £1m small grant programme called All Our Stories to help local communities discover their past. The funding could be used for researching local historic landmarks, learning more about customs and traditions, delving into archives and finding out the origins of street and place names. Applications are open to community groups, heritage organisations and charities. Grants ranging from £3,000 to £10,000 will be made for activities from researching local historic landmarks to learning about customs and traditions. The deadline for applications is Tuesday, 31 July 2012.
