‘Local Connections Fund’ supporting Herefordshire Lore

Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport - in partnership with The National Lottery Community Fund

A huge “Thank You” to the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport, in partnership with The National Lottery Community Fund, for help from their Local Connections Fund.

It has helped us produce our latest edition of In Our Age. With our usual distribution channels disrupted because of the pandemic, this funding has been invaluable in making sure In Our Age still goes out across the county.

Pride of place: Social housing in Herefordshire

Herefordshire Lore is delighted to announce its successful funding bid, ‘Pride of Place’, with Connexus Housing’s Community Fund.

Herefordshire Lore has been recording and publishing local social history in the county since the 1980s. Its archive is regularly consulted by researchers and other history projects, and its publications have appeared at Hay Festival.

Connexus is a community focused rural housing group with over 10,500 homes across Shropshire and Herefordshire and the county’s biggest provider of social housing. Herefordshire Lore is looking forward to partnering with the team at Connexus and its residents – past and current – in recording their voices. A special celebratory pull-out edition of our quarterly journal, In Our Age, will be released in the summer featuring their stories.
