MILFORD Haven Museum has been awarded £8,000 to help disabled visitors enjoy local history.

The money from the National Lottery Community Fund - previously known as the Big Lottery Fund - has been used to install a new stair lift in the building to improve access for users with mobility issues.

In the last 25 years, the National Lottery has helped support causes and projects across Wales and the UK.

John Rose, Director Wales for the National Lottery Community Fund, said: “National Lottery funding for good causes changes lives.

"Last year alone, over £35 million of National Lottery funding went out to more than 1,000 community projects in Wales.

"The funding lets people bring their ideas to life, communities are thriving thanks to the National Lottery.”

Milford Haven Museum re-opens to the public for the spring on April 8.
