Jackpot joy for town museum

By timesecholife on in All News, Latest News

A UTTOXETER museum has hit the jackpot with a £30,000 donation that unlocks vital lottery funding.

Support from digger giants JCB has proved key to Redfern’s Cottage achieving £50,000 partnership funding for a project to transform the much-loved heritage centre.

Thanks to the match funding target being reached, the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) has now awarded the project a National Lottery grant of £988,400.

The cash injection will see the 400-year-old Carter Street Museum of Uttoxeter Life renovated and developed to a whole new level.

Developments include a new café, community life zone and interactive galleries on domestic life, the Civil War, markets, and the making of the modern town, along with a new sensory garden.
