West Dunbartonshire Council’s Heritage Team has secured a Sharing Heritage grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) to support its plans to commemorate the 75th anniversary of the Clydebank Blitz in March, 2016.

This HLF funding has allowed us to establish a Project Group, made up of volunteers from the local community, who will lead research and memory gathering activities in preparation for a commemoration exhibition to be held in Clydebank Heritage Centre next year.

The Clydebank Blitz had a profound effect on the sense of identity of local people across the wider Clydebank area. This commemoration project gives us an opportunity, working with the local community, to make sure that the Clydebank Blitz - and the people, places and stories associated with it - continue to be remembered.

As our project progresses, there will be various opportunities for you to become involved. If, however, you’re interested in volunteering with the Project Group, then please do get in touch using the contact details below.

You can also follow the work of the Project Group via their Facebook (Link opens in new browser window) and Twitter (Link opens in new browser window) feeds.
