We are grateful for the support of Heritage Fund and the players of the National Lottery. Their financial support of £88K has been key in enabling us to fulfil our vision to create a Heritage Centre, to provide a programme of local history education for local schools and develop LyDiA- The Lymm Digital Archive.
THE HLF support project ran from March 2017 to January 31st 2021., extended in part because of issues caused by Coronavirus. At the end of the project we submitted an Evaluation Report to the Heritage Fund in which we were encouraged to record our achievements but also identify areas where more could still be done to achieve the best possible results.
You can download that complete report here. Do have a read and see if you would like to get involved in our ongoing project.
We are proud and honoured to have Sir Terry Waite as our patron.
Our patron, Sir Terry Waite, shares a memory with volunteer Alan Taylor of the time they worked together at Millings the grocers in Lymm villiage.
