A community history project designed

and delivered by Sandringham Enterprise -

an independent rural charity in Norfolk, UK

What our project will do...


Create an oral history archive of the voices of Marham


Work with all local community groups, schools and residents to capture our story


To create a set of community display boards, available to all - telling our story


Write a book, recording the history of our community across the 19th and 20th Centuries

Project budget:


The completion of our project relies wholly on the generosity of our charitable volunteers.

From management  of the project, recording of voices in Marham and the creation of the specified outputs - our volunteer team are the drivers of the work and provide us with the energy needed to achieve so much.


We are grateful to all the individuals, companies and community organisations who work with us in the next year - and to the Heritage Lottery Fund, without whose encouragement and funding the project would probably not have happened.


Below is the main budget for our project - we will expand this web page to record our spending and allocation of resources, for all to see, as we move forward with the project.


(We will publish our periodic HLF project reports on our web site too).
