New Competition Autumn 2018

The Heritage Hub's Match Funding Competition to support community groups in developing local history or heritage projects is now open to receive applications.

There are five match funding awards on offer this year. If your group has a project and you have already secured some funding whether it is £100 or £800, if your application is successful we will match that funding.

Proposals are invited from any formally constituted heritage/history/community group wishing to undertake a local project.

This might include the production of a heritage trail or map, a publication, information boards, an exhibition or anything which supports the sharing of a local story.

Hertford Choral Society (HCS) is a non-auditioned community choir ​and registered charity ​based in Hertford. They were recipients of the Autumn 2017 round of the Heritage Hub Match Funding.  The award aided HCS to publish a book recording their remarkable 80 year history. Written by choir members June Crew and Frances Green the book is testament to the durability and good spirit of choir members through the second World War to present day.
