Vision Fountain were awarded Lottery funding from the National Lottery Heritage Fund in November 2020 from their “15-Minute Heritage” grant scheme.
“The aim of this grant scheme is to support small-scale projects which help to connect communities with heritage in their local area.”
Vision Fountain will be looking at the Heath Park in Cardiff, North. The large woodland and open-field park is right next to University of Wales Hospital.
Through sharing stories about the The Park and finding out about the past, we will strengthen our connections with the community.
The experience of the lockdown in response to coronavirus (COVID-19) was a powerful reminder of the value and importance of the local environment to communities. Connecting with nature and heritage can be critical for maintaining personal mental and physical wellbeing.
We will be telling the stories of the rich and varied community who use the park for leasure and pleasure while remebering that their legacy in the environment is our heritage today.
