Plymouth Market Archive

Heritage Lottery Fund support for Plymouth Market Archive project!

Fotonow (Community Interest Company) is one of the first groups in the UK to have received a Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) All Our Stories grant that will support a year-long project to tell the story of Plymouth City Market. The history of Plymouth City Market is one deeply embedded in its community of traders and customers. 'This is an epic building with some great stories,' says Matthew Pontin, Creative Director of social enterprise Fotonow CIC. Now the organisation, aided by the 7,800 grant, will create an archive of this once bustling local market where, for example, Virgin Records based a stall in the 1970s.
