£250,000 of lottery funding secured for Lynmouth Pavilion
A Heritage Lottery Fund grant of £250,000 has been given to Exmoor National Park to help with learning, outreach and heritage work at Lynmouth Pavilion.
Work on the pavilion began in November last year and an estimated completion date has been set for summer 2013.
Part of the new funding will go towards two three year posts at the pavilion: a Project Officer and a part-time Volunteer Co-ordinator.
The posts will include working with local schools, colleges and community groups during a programme of event days, evening talks, seaside safaris, woodland walks, tours, workshops and specialist days.

Nick Harvey, local MP for North Devon, commented on the funding.
He said: "I am very pleased to hear that the Exmoor National Park Authority has secured this significant grant, which will enable them to continue their excellent work promoting Lynton, Lynmouth and Exmoor present and past.
"I look forward to seeing the dynamic project around Lynmouth Pavilion taking shape so people across the community can celebrate our fantastic heritage here in North Devon."
Richard Bellamy, Head of the Heritage Lottery Fund South West, added: "This is an exciting project that will create a long-lasting and sustainable future for the historic Lynmouth Pavilion and provide a vibrant community space for people to explore and share the history of Lynton, Lynmouth and Exmoor National Park.
"It's great to know that volunteers will form a key part of this project and gain valuable skills along the way helping to share their knowledge with the public."
