Burrenbeo Trust: Heritage Keepers workshops and grants for community groups


Burrenbeo Trust have put out a call for community groups, youth groups and primary schools to take part in the national Heritage Keepers programme. Have fun, learn something new, make a difference – become a Heritage Keeper!

Heritage Keepers is a free programme for community groups, youth groups and primary schools that will enable them to work together to explore the built, natural, and cultural heritage of their local place and then plan an action or actions to enhance their place. In-person, online and blended learning options are available. Last year 20 schools and communities took part in the programme, with most going on to complete a funded local project or actions. These funded actions included pond building, local heritage trails, signage for biodiversity, oral history projects and local heritage booklets. The expanded Heritage Keepers programme is now looking for ‘Expressions of Interest’ from those who wish to take part in the five 2-hour workshops in Spring 2023.

"Heritage Keepers aims to empower people to explore and discover their own local heritage" says Burrenbeo Trust Co-ordinator Áine Bird. "This helps foster a sense of pride, ownership and ultimately responsibility towards both their community and environment. This is more important than ever given the challenges the world currently faces".

For those interested in learning more, go to Burrenbeo.com/hk for more details or to fill out a short Expression of Interest form (the deadline for submissions is the 30th of November).
