Not-for-profit organisations in the UK have until 31 August 2017 to apply for a Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) grant to revitalise an historic public park or cemetery.
The Heritage Lottery Fund’s (HLF) Parks for People funding helps to conserve the heritage that makes both historic parks and cemeteries special, and it gives local people a say in how they are managed in the future. Projects improve people’s wellbeing and knowledge of their area, and make communities better places to live, work and visit.
Applicants need to show that the local community values the park or cemetery as part of their heritage, and that they are already actively involved in its management. Not-for-profit organisations and partnerships led by not-for-profit organisations can apply including local authorities, charities, trusts, community interest companies, social enterprises, parish councils, voluntary organisations and community groups.
Whether you want to get out on your bike, stream dip for minibeasts, hunt for fossils or get down to the park for a bear hunt there’s lots to explore.
If you’re batty about bats, curious about museums or mad about football, there’s so much to do the only problem you’ll have is fitting everything in.
