Heritage Lottery Fund
Lincolnshire Chalk Streams Project has received £45,300 from the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) for an exciting project, 'Engaging the Lincolnshire Community with their Chalk Stream Heritage', throughout the Lincolnshire Wolds, match funded by Lincolnshire County Council. This project focuses on providing a variety of opportunities for people of all ages to learn about and engage with this rare and unique chalk stream habitat in their county.
The project will provide opportunities for volunteer graduates to gain work experience working with the Lincolnshire Chalk Streams Project, bring chalk streams into homes via the internet - especially important for those who are unable to access the outdoors, deliver events for families to get out onto the chalk streams and to help communities learn techniques to look after their chalk streams. With the help of volunteers we will be organising various events across the chalk streams over the next three years of this HLF funded project. This year we organised the first ever Lincolnshire Chalk Streams Festival event as a way for people to come together and celebrate this wonderful rare treasure in Lincolnshire along with a very successful photography competition (see the separate link on the left for photos and more details!)
