HLF to visit Thornton Gate

The Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) is to visit Blackpool and the proposed Thornton Gate site in Wyre Borough following a pre-application to the HLF, submitted in December 2011. This is a very positive step forward and gives the LTT the opportunity to present in more detail the plans for a Transport Heritage Centre at Thornton Gate and for HLF officers to outline their criteria for the next stages of the application process. The news follows an offer of lease from the site's owners Blackpool Borough Council.
Since 1994, the HLF have awarded £528million to more than 3,000 projects across the North West, sustaining and transforming the region's heritage.

New Year & New Website

Firstly, all the very best for 2012 to all our members and supporters. Let's hope it is a good one - it will certainly be a challenging one for the LTT with our development plans for the Thornton Gate site.
A new year also brings a new website. After around 7 years, I thought it was time to completely refresh the LTT website and rethink the content and structure. Over the Xmas period, thanks to the award winning and highly functional 1&1 web host, this was speedily achieved and the result looks much better. I hope you will enjoy it!
