West Lancashire MP Rosie Cooper wants local community groups to apply for Heritage Lottery funding (HLF) to mark World War One centenary.
HLF is making at least £1m a year available until 2019 as part of the ‘First World War: then and now’ programme for small, community grants.
It will provide grants of £3,000 to £10,000 enabling groups across the UK to explore, conserve and share their First World War heritage and deepen their understanding of the impact of the conflict.
Ms Cooper said: “I’m delighted that the Heritage Lottery Fund is making this money available to local communities. Like many areas across the UK, the impact of the First World War on the people of West Lancashire was extensive.”
