With just a year to go before the centenary of the First World War, an Edmonton MP has urged people to find out more about the event.

Andy Love, Edmonton MP has encouraged his constituents to apply for the Heritage Lottery Fund to educate more people about The Great War and its impact locally.

The fund is making more than £1million a year available until 2019 as part of the First World War: then and now programme.

Andy Love MP said: “I’m delighted that the Heritage Lottery Fund is making this money available to local communities.  Like many areas across the UK, the impact of the First World War on the people of Edmonton was extensive.   For those who want to find out more about its legacy or who wish to mark the centenary, I would urge them to get in touch with the fund.”
