Heritage Lottery Announce Funding
The Heritage Lottery Fund has announced a substantial award which will enable the Comrie Development Trust to proceed with a great new project – the repair and refurbishment of 11 Nissen huts to create a self catering development at the community owned land at Cultybraggan Camp, the former POW and army training base by Comrie.
The development will safeguard the future of 11 B listed properties to provide a unique visitor experience in a stunningly beautiful Perthshire location. The project will deliver an economic and employment boost to the area during construction and refocus the Trust’s efforts to create financially sustainable resource from the buildings that have played such large part in the history of the village.
Other agencies, Historic Environment Scotland, and our own Community Benefit Society, the Comrie Heritage Self Catering Society, all contributed to the final total fund of £800,000.
As most local people will be aware, Heinrich Steinmeyer, who was a prisoner at Cultybraggan Camp towards the end of World War II, was deeply moved by the unexpected way he was treated both at the camp and by people from the Comrie area.
Heinrich died in 2014, and since then there has been a lengthy process in Germany to settle his estate, and to transfer the £384,000 to a special bank account set up by Comrie Development Trust.
The transfer of the Steinmeyer legacy is nearly complete, and CDT is now looking for local people with an interest in developments for older people in Comrie and the local area to join a legacy group to bring benefit to local older people and remember him in doing that. …
