On Thursday 27th April 2017, Enter CIC received a grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) for an exciting project, When Yesterday Was Young, in County Durham. Made possible by money raised by National Lottery players, the project focuses on the mining heritage of Dean and Chapter Colliery and its impact on the identity of the North East.

Andrea Flynn, Project Lead
Commenting on the award, Andrea Flynn said: “We are absolutely thrilled to receive support thanks to National Lottery players and the Heritage Lottery Fund. We are confident the project will support young people to be active citizens in the discovery and honouring of their industrial heritage.”
