Havering Museum loves its �9,900 Lottery grant
Money will pay for “I Heart History” project
LOVE for history is the order of the day at Havering Museum after it won a �9,900 Lottery grant.
The grant will allow the museum, in The Brewery Gate, High Street, Romford, to run “I Heart History” up until May next year, a project which celebrates ordinary people’s love for the past.
Volunteers will record and tell the story of how a group of historians and residents got together to fight for the museum and a postcard survey invites members of the public to say why they “heart” history.
Adults are being treated to a selection of lunchtime history lectures about the local area.
