Cambridge Community Heritage supported twenty-two successful applications from local community groups to the Heritage Lottery Fund’s oversubscribed All Our Stories programme. An overwhelming success for the research team and the community groups who will be running an exciting range of heritage projects in the coming year. Here are a selection of the All Our Stories projects we will be helping to deliver:
One of two projects in the East of England selected for the national media launch, Cambridge United Football Club appear on the ITV website and on the BBC website in the broadcasters’ announcements of the All Our Stories projects.
The recently formed Sturmer Local History Group feature in the Haverhill Echo. The group will be create a local heritage trail, detailing the village history and natural history.
Meldreth Local History Group have made an announcement about their test pit digging project on their website. Like those featured on Michael Wood’s BBC series ‘The Great British Story’ earlier in the year, the group will explore how their community developed and evolved through small scale excavations by local residents and supported by Access Cambridge Archaeology. The Royston Crow have reported on The History of Meldreth Project which you can read here.
Cambridge Community Heritage is led by Dr Carenza Lewis, archaeologist and landscape historian well-known from Channel 4’s Time Team. She will be interviewed on BBC Radio Cambridgeshire this afternnoon (22nd November, appoximately 5pm) about her involvement in the All Our Stories projects.
