INVERCLYDE-based charities and community groups find out how to apply for National Lottery Heritage Fund grants at an event later this month.
The fund’s engagement team will be at the Watt Institution, Kelly Street, for a presentation and workshop on Tuesday 24 May from 10am to 1pm.
Mirella Arcidiacono of the National Lottery Heritage Fund in Scotland said: “Heritage is for everyone, and heritage can be anything from the past that we want to preserve for today’s and future generations.
“From local stories; community history and traditions to archaeology and nature –- this is all part of our heritage and our team of experts will be on hand to talk to anyone who wants to come along about how to create their own successful heritage project.”
Groups and charities will have a chance to share their ideas for heritage projects with fund staff and a heritage consultant.
They will get feedback and tips on how to turn those ideas into projects that could potentially receive funding.
People will also be able hear directly from other heritage projects who have received a National Lottery Heritage Fund grant about their experiences of the process.
Guest speakers will include Karen Orr from Rig Arts in Greenock and Sally Clough of Belville Community Garden Trust in Greenock.
Places can be booked online.
