Fairhaven Lake will be throwing open its doors for an exclusive look at its heritage archive on Sunday 9th December to National Lottery players.
They are one of hundreds of participating National Lottery-funded visitor attractions across the UK saying ‘thanks’ to people who have raised money for good causes by buying a lottery ticket.
The idea is simple: any visitor who presents a National Lottery ticket or scratch card on Sunday 9th December gets free exclusive access to the Fairhaven archive which will be displayed in the Isaac Dixon Boathouse at Fairhaven Lake.
Fylde Council has received £165,500 from the Heritage Lottery Fund. The money has paid for the development of the round two application for full funding for the restoration of Fairhaven Lake.
Ros Kerslake, Chief Executive of the Heritage Lottery Fund, said: “December is a wonderful time to experience the UK’s rich, diverse and exciting heritage, which has been transformed by more than £7.8bn National Lottery funding since 1994. This is a small gesture of thanks and a way of giving something back to the people who buy tickets.”
Cllr Cheryl Little, Chair of the Tourism and Leisure Committee, said: “Thanks to National Lottery players we’ve been able to do a huge amount of work to reinvigorate the interest in Fairhaven Lake and Gardens through supporting friends groups and organisations. Encourage the rejuvenation of the historic lake and gardens, making sure that its history is understood and explained, and that the local community has a say in its future.”
