Heritage Centre Award

The Liphook Heritage Centre has been shortlisted for a prestigious national award at the 2012 Biffa Awards, a ceremony which recognises the people that transform their communities through Biffa Award funded projects.

Selected from nearly 100 hopeful applicants, Liphook Heritage Centre and Local Archive will now compete against four other organisations from across the country for the chance to be named winner of the ‘Cultural Facilities’ category, and receive a £2,000 prize.

The enthusiastic historians received £35,000 in funding from Biffa Award to provide a central location where local artefacts can be stored and preserved while giving access to the surrounding community so as to conserve their link with their area’s heritage.

The Biffa Awards 2012 will be held on September 27 at the Historic Dockyard Chatham, Kent where all the finalists will be invited to attend a day of celebrating the enthusiasm and commitment of those that dedicate their lives to making a real difference to their community and the environment.

Competition has been fierce from the start, with more than 200 projects eligible to enter the awards under five different categories: Community Buildings, Cultural Facilities, Rebuilding Biodiversity, Recreation and Small Grants.

Category winners at the Awards will receive a trophy and prize money of £2,000, which can be used to develop their project or fund other initiatives. Each winner then has the chance of being crowned the Overall Winner for 2012, receiving a further £1,000 prize.

Gillian French, Biffa Award Programme Manager, said:

“The Biffa Awards provide us with a unique opportunity to reward and recognise the amazing people that are involved in the projects we have funded. Many of the projects we fund have a huge impact on the communities and environment around them, so to be shortlisted in a tremendous achievement in itself. Our judges have a very difficult task ahead in choosing the winners.”
