A Grant from SKDC Heritage Alive

A grant was made to The Thorold by the SKDC economic growth and regeneration company InvestSK. Under its Heritage Alive programme. The money will go towards repairing some of the windows and doors, which are believed to be 175 years old.

The fund is open to any school, youth association, community group, place of worship, charity or constituted organisation within South Kesteven, which is delivering a relevant heritage project within the area.

Steve Bowyer, chief executive of InvestSK, said:

“Through InvestSK’s Heritage Alive! programme we’re delighted to launch this new grant fund which forms part of our work to celebrate and conserve local heritage. The grants are designed to be accessible and quick to process, and will offer a welcome financial boost to the district’s already fantastic heritage offer.

“We hope to receive a range of applications across the whole of the South Kesteven district, from all three tiers of funds. Applications could include projects that improve accessibility to interpretation materials, like audio guides, handling exhibits or video tours. Or they could fund the repair of a church window or roof, the installation of ramps or hearing loops, and the digitisation of documents or archives to make them available to the public, for example.”
