Revival North Yorkshire Community Interest Company has received £7,300 from the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) for an exciting new project, Egton Remembers – 100 years of

Village Life.

The project is based in Egton Village Hall, which this year celebrates its 60th anniversary, and includes the villages of Egton and Egton Bridge.

Made possible by money raised by National Lottery players, the project focuses on collecting old photographs of the local area and sharing memories. The group will create permanent collection of photographs in the village hall that can be displayed at future events.

The project will enable older people to share their memories with children and other adults who maybe new to, or visiting, the area.

Information can then be gathered about the photos brought to the events and they will be photographed to create a permanent record.

Debbie Swales of Revival North Yorkshire said: “We are thrilled to have received support thanks to National Lottery players and look forward to people coming together to share their photographs and memories at our Community Photo Sessions and special ‘Red Carpet’ event.

“Remembers is a celebration of the area and its people.”
