Exciting news for Heritage Channel | Clee.TV
We're delighted to announce that Hammond House Ltd Hammond House Publishing Clee.TV Hammond House Productions have secured £248,600 from a National Lottery Heritage Fund grant to set up The Heritage Channel Heritage Channel | Clee.TV, a monthly magazine show dedicated to sharing local heritage news through online broadcasts.
Having completed a successful pilot of the show thanks to a Heritage Starter Fund grant, the team at Hammond House will now be able to host the show on a monthly basis.
It will give the communities of North East Lincolnshire the opportunity to discover some of the fascinating coastal heritage that is on their doorsteps. Former and current residents will get the chance to learn more about their history, including stories about the fishing industry, seaside festivals and historic sites and buildings.
The project will also provide training and workshops for local people so that they can produce content for the channel. It will aim to particularly engage young people, disabled people, and other disadvantaged groups in the hopes of increasing interest in heritage of the area.
Ted Stanley, CEO of Hammond House said: “We are grateful for this opportunity to continue broadcasting the Heritage Channel programmes which proved so popular during the recent Heritage Starter Fund pilot. I was delighted to see the level of interest in heritage subjects from the people of North East Lincolnshire with some programmes attracting over 80,000 viewers.
“We are also looking forward to providing support to other heritage organisations in Lincolnshire by telling their stories, developing skills in video production for staff and volunteers, and helping them secure funding for their projects. A very big thank you to all the people who play the National Lottery for making this possible.”
"We initially received a grant through the Heritage Starter Fund scheme, run by North East Lincolnshire Council and funded by The National Lottery Heritage Fund."
