The St Georges Community Group have been awarded a National Lottery grant for the North Telford Heritage Trail project, which will engage the local community in celebrating the area’s rich heritage.

The £10,000 grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) has enabled the project to create a 6 mile trail route, website and app, hold a series of community events, and provide training for a team of project volunteers. Part of that training will be provided to our sixth form in a series of events.

The idea for the route came from former Granville Colliery Miners, Malcolm Peel, Stewart Braddock and Cliff Hewitt who have visited HTA previously to talk to year 7 students about their own mining experiences at the Granville Colliery.

On Tuesday 10 October enthusiastic local historians, walkers and HTA sixth formers walked the 6 mile route.

Michael Clarke takes the lead.
