Collections to benefit from MA grants

Nine UK attractions to receive cash injection as part of main funding programme

By Martin Nash

The Museums Association (MA) has awarded grants to ten candidates in the second round of Effective Collections funding. Yorkshire Museum and

Northumberland's Berwick Museum and Art Gallery are among nine applicants in line for main fund grants of up to £10,000. Supported by the Esmée Fairbairne Foundation, the grants will enable successful candidates to develop and utilise their stored collections. Yorkshire Museum is to

receive funding for a scheme offering local employees greater insight into the objects they work with. The Pocket Money project will offer people such as charity collectors a chance to learn more about the museum's coin collection.

Berwick Museum and Art

Gallery has proposed a review of its entire collection, which includes 19th century French paintings donated by William Burrell and an extensive store of social history objects. In addition to main funding

awards, a further special project grant of £25,000 has

been awarded to Oxfordshire Museums Service for The History Cube – a scheme offering community groups access, training and support so that they can curate collections relevant to their interests. Other successful applicants

include Orleans House Gallery in Twickenham, London.

£4.9m boost for Nottingham youth facility plans

By Pete Hayman

A new multi-million pound youth centre is to be built in Nottingham after the local authority secured more than £4.9m as part of the govern- ment's myplace initiative. Nottingham City Council

(NCC) is behind the NGY project, which is one of four proposed youth facilities earmarked for the East Midlands region that will benefit from a funding package worth almost £20m. Plans for the new centre

include a music recording studio; a DVD production area; a dance studio; a gym and a café, in addition to offering activities such as football and martial arts. The council is working in partnership with a range of

NGY myplace will be housed within the former home of Trent FM

private, voluntary and statutory organisations on the scheme, ensuring the facility provides support and advice on issues affecting local 13-19-year-olds. NGY myplace will be housed

in a revamped historic building in the city centre – 29-31 Castle Gate, which is the former home of radio station Trent FM and a specialist women's hospital.

NCC portfolio holder for

children and families David Mellen said: "NGY myplace will be an innovative place for young people aged 13 and above in the heart of the city. "Whether it is just a coffee

and place to meet friends or being able to speak to a trained professional, NGY myplace will have it all."
