Have your say

GOSPORT MP Caroline Dinenage is urging communities in her constituency to apply for a portion of the new £4m Heritage Lottery Fund money to explore the impact of the First World War.

New National Lottery funding is available to help communities across the UK mark the centenary of the First World War, following the success of its community grants programmes, First World War: Then and Now.

Communities can apply for grants between £3,000 and £10,000 to explore and conserve the local heritage.

Ms Dinenage said: ‘The Gosport peninsula has a rich military history and plenty of stories to tell.’
