Two historical societies have received Government grants to fund education programmes.

The St George’s Historical Society was presented with a $5,000 cheque while the Bermuda Historical Society received $6,000.

A Government spokeswoman said: “Each year, the department of culture provides a series of grants for organisations with a demonstrated need.

“These grants help to support Bermuda’s cultural and artistic communities. These most recent grants will go towards helping the two organisations in their cultural and educational awareness and support efforts.”

Ernest Peets, the Minister of Youth, Culture and Sport, made the presentation to Jeannie Olander, president of the St George’s Historical Society, and Andrew Bermingham of the Bermuda Historical Society.
