St. Antony's Centre, Trafford Park Heritage Project celebrates £7,800.00 Heritage Lottery Fund Grant

St. Antony's Centre is one of the first groups in the UK to receive a Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) 'All Our Stories' grant, it was announced today. The exciting project 'Park Life' led by the Trafford Park Heritage Centre has been given £7,800.00 to prepare an audio visual exhibition with digitised images and digital recordings by people who lived or worked on the Trafford Park Industrial Estate. Besides images, the exhibition and online resources, an activity pack for schools to help children understand the lives and experiences of those from the Trafford Park area will be prepared.

All Our Stories, a brand new small grant programme, launched earlier this year in support of BBC Two's The Great British Story has been designed as an opportunity for everyone to get involved in their heritage. With HLF funding and support, community groups will carry out activites that help people explore, share and celebrate their local heritage.

'Park Life' is one of hundreds of successful projects around the UK to receive a grant. St. Antony's Centre and its Trafford Park Heritage Project will be working with former residents and employees to capture the unique history of the residential community and industrial estate over the past 100 years.

Opportunities will be given for people to participate in the project as well as learning new skills in digital recording, editing material and producing community exhibitions. It is also hoped that local schools can offer their own ideas and join in the creative interpretation of the stories and images.
