I know many of you are already making plans to mark 100 years since the start of the First World War, and the 70th anniversary of D-Day in 2014. You might be interested to know therefore that Hampshire County Council has launched a brand new grant scheme to help support local communities in their plans to mark these historic milestones next year. Funding of between £200 and £2,000 is available to help match-fund community-led projects and events through the new ‘Hampshire Commemorates’ scheme, which forms part of the raft of events and initiatives planned by the County Council to mark the anniversaries.
