Press Release: ‘Middlewich and the Great War Project’ wins Heritage Lottery Fund support
Middlewich Town Council’s ‘Middlewich and the Great War Project’ wins Heritage Lottery Fund support.
Today Middlewich Town Council has received £9,900 from the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) through their Sharing Heritage programme, for an exciting project, Middlewich and the Great War. Led by Middlewich Town Council, the project focuses on schools, community groups and residents coming together to commemorate and increase our understanding of the Great War era.
In June 2013, on behalf of Middlewich Town Council, Ian Doughty Chair and Collections Manager of Congleton Museum travelled to the British Museum, London, to collect a 17th Century Gold Mourning Ring.
This brings to an end a year long wait for this beautiful ring to make its way back to Cheshire. It was found in Middlewich and classed as Treasure Trove, meaning a frantic few months for Middlewich Town Council to not only raise sufficient funds for the purchase of this ring but also find a way of showing it to the public.
