Grants scheme to restore Cumbria war memorials launched

A grants scheme to improve or restore Cumbria war memorials to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the start of the First World War and the 70th anniversary of the D-Day landings has been launched by North of England Horticultural Society.

It will see £500 dished out to a number of counties including Cumbria and Lancashire to improve landscape around community memorials, cenotaphs and remembrance gardens.

Harrogate Flower Shows director Nick Smith said: “Most of the UK’s 100,000 war memorials lie at the heart of communities, providing a place to remember loved ones and pay respects to those who have given, and continue to give, their lives serving their country during conflict.

“In a year that marks two important anniversaries, the Centenary of the outbreak of the First World War and the 70th communities across the region the opportunity to apply for a contribution towards ensuring that their memorials can remain a place of peace and beauty for years to come.”

The North of England Horticultural Society, which organises and runs Harrogate Flower Shows, uses the proceeds from the spring and autumn events to promote horticulture in the region.

The NEHS grants scheme also includes funding for community groups and societies to develop their local landscape, and for grow and learn projects in local schools.

A new educational support grant for people wishing to start a career in the industry has also been launched.

The deadline for grant applications is Monday, June 16.
