Gosport has benefited from nearly £10m in lottery funding since 1995, with money being used to support a wide range of projects such as Heritage Open Days, and the town is ranked as seventh in England by the Royal Society for the encouragement of Arts’ Heritage Index for its heritage.

Ms Dinenage said: ‘Gosport has such a rich history, and Heritage Lottery Funding has been invaluable in preserving this and ensuring as many people as possible are able to enjoy it.

‘I’m thrilled Gosport is ranked so highly in the heritage index.’
