The Society was awarded a Local Heritage Initiative grant. The Local Heritage Initiative is a partnership between the Heritage Lottery fund, Nationwide Building Society and the Countryside Agency and is set up to enable local groups to investigate, explain and care for their local landscape, landmarks, traditions and culture.
The grant was up to the value of £10,521 with the purpose of producing a book on the ‘Yards of Finedon’ including the development of a heritage database. The award included the costs for materials and equipment, volunteer costs and design, printing and photography.
