Great opportunity for local voluntary organisations and groups! Heritage Lottery Fund free information session at BAVO 23 April 2018

Date published: 04/04/2018

Andrew Harris from the Heritage Lottery Fund will be at BAVO's offices in Maesteg to meet local voluntary organisations and groups on Monday 23 April logofrom 2 - 4pm. Andrew will be explaining the funding programmes, exploring ways of increasing the type and number of applications (hopefully successful ones) for Heritage Lottery Funding and explaining how they can provide support to enable this to happen. The event will last about two hours and include time for questions.

The Heritage Lottery Fund offers grants for heritage projects but that doesn’t just mean old buildings. It can also include history and heritage reflected through communities, people’s memories and stories and working with young people to explore ideas of identity and place.

The Bridgend area is currently considered to be a priority development area for the Heritage Lottery Fund until March 2019, by which time a new Strategic Plan will be launched and the priority areas likely to change.

This year might therefore be the last opportunity to benefit from extra support from the Heritage Lottery Fund in developing project ideas/applications and they are actively encouraging applications from the 'Our Heritage' and 'Sharing Heritage' programmes as well as its larger programmes.

More information on the programmes can be found here or if you would like to discuss a project idea you can contact Andrew Harris, E:

The event will take place at BAVO, 112-113 Commercial Street, Maesteg, CF34 9DL. Spaces will be limited, so please register your interest with Jan Thickpenny at BAVO, T: 01656 810400 or E:
