Communities have until January 31 to apply for grants
Communities across Devon have until the end of January to apply for the first round of funding for a World War One Memorial restoration grant.
Devon County Council announced last year that £150,000 had been made available to the WW1 war memorials project, administered by Community Council of Devon.
There were an estimated 2,000 war memorials created in local communities across Devon at the end of the Great War, and while many of these survive and are maintained, others have fallen into disrepair and lie largely unnoticed.
Organisations, including Town and Parish Councils responsible for the maintenance of public war memorials, can apply for grants of between £750 and £3,000, on condition that they contribute at least 25% of the total cost of the restoration project.
