National Lottery Heritage fund grant awarded

The Charmouth Local History Society (CLHS) has received a National Lottery Heritage Fund grant of £4,500 for an exciting project to increase the exposure of the village’s rich heritage in Charmouth. Made possible by money raised by National Lottery players, the project focuses on upgrading its website and the creation of regular pop-up exhibitions at various points in the village.

The new website will include an on-line shop, membership signup facilities and blog, better access to the CLHS archives and on-line publications. The pop-up exhibitions will put themed extracts of CLHS archives on display for short periods of time. Four events per year will be planned but more can be organized if they prove to be popular. There will be opportunities for volunteers to assist with the exhibitions.
