17 Jan 2019

Thanks to National Lottery players, over £5million has now been raised to support 80 community heritage projects across the borough of Newcastle-under-Lyme. 

I really appreciate all the National Lottery’s efforts in backing worthwhile projects in Newcastle as a matter of priority. We are the biggest town in Staffordshire, next door to its biggest city, but with a distinct history and identity from Stoke-on-Trent.

National Lottery players’ contributions are making sure that our centuries-old heritage is not only being preserved, but has been given a whole new lease of life for the benefit of the whole community.

The milestone has been reached with a grant of £97,600 to repair and restore the iconic town centre barracks. The Barracks Trust will be celebrating their building’s history in 2019 with activities to collect and share local people’s memories of the venue.
