Community groups in West Norfolk are being encouraged to apply for lottery funding to help with projects planned to mark the centenary of the First World War.
Next year will mark the 100th anniversary of the outbreak of the conflict, in which almost a million British and Empire soldiers were killed.
To mark the anniversary, the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) will be giving around £1 million per year until 2019 to community projects commemorating the war in grants of between £3,000 and £10,000.
And North West Norfolk MP Henry Bellingham has called for organisations in the borough to put their ideas forward.
He said: “I’m delighted that the Heritage Lottery Fund is making this money available to local communities.
“Like many areas across the UK, the impact of the First World War on the people of North West Norfolk was extensive.
“For those who want to find out more about its legacy or who wish to mark the centenary, I would urge them to get in touch with HLF.”
Successful projects are likely to include research and community archives, as well as the preservation of local war memorials and the development of new heritage trails.
