Can we remind researchers that up to £2000 is available for people undertaking research into Nottinghamshire history. This is thanks to Geoffrey Bond’s generous grant of £1000 together with another £1000 from Thoroton Society funds. Applications are invited from individuals or societies which will need to be sent to the Honorary Secretary of the Thoroton Society by 1st September 2019 at firstname.lastname@example.org
Details of the terms and conditions are available on the Thoroton website at www.thorotonsociety.org.uk or contact Barbara Cast as above.
In 2018 Bassetlaw Christian Heritage was awarded £1000 to continue its project to identify, research and document information on the unique part the Bassetlaw area played in Christian history; to archaeologist Tom Keyworth the sum of £635 for a non-invasive investigation at Lodge Farm, Burton Joyce; and to Jenny Sissons £350 for research into the county’s mediaeval monastic sites.
It is hoped that more individuals and groups will apply for this useful financial support for their research in 2019 and we would urge all researchers to consider whether they could be helped in their endeavours by a grant.
Barbara Cast, Honorary Secretary, Thoroton Society of Nottinghamshire
