Lottery Funding

In August this year UWALS submitted a grant application to the Heritage Lottery Fund and just two weeks ago we were given the great news that we have been successful.

The Heritage Lottery Fund has awarded UWALS a substantial grant to fund some exciting new activities in 2019 called “Presenting the Past”. The focus for these activities is a collection of old local photographs which have been generously loaned to us by Matthew Roberts of Kettlewell.

We plan to stage another exhibition in April/May 2020 but leading up to that there will be a range of activities for the local community to be involved with – all funded by the Heritage Lottery Grant.

We hope that there will be something for everyone with a diverse range of topics including:

  • Photography
  • Music
  • Art
  • Local History
  • Oral History
  • Film
  • Creative Writing

If you are interested in knowing more about “Presenting the Past” and what is planned for next year then members of the UWALS Committee will be at Conistone with Kilnsey Village Hall on Saturday 26th January 2019 from 10 until 3pm.

Pop in anytime between 10am and 3pm and find out more about this exciting new project!
