News - £100,000 for museum (Newark)

A grant of £100,000 is set to be given to a project to convert the Old Magnus Buildings into a Civil War museum.

The grant would come from the remaining money to be allocated from the now defunct group of local authorities and organisations known as the Nottinghamshire Partnership.

There is £375,600 left to spend on community projects in Newark and Sherwood.

The grant to the £4.4m Old Magnus Buildings scheme, of which it is hoped £2.8m will come from the Heritage Lottery Fund, has been suggested by the district council.
