North Somerset Museum in Burlington Street will receive £48,400 from the Heritage Lottery Fund.

The cash will go towards creating a new exhibition called Roots to North Somerset, which will record stories of how people came to live in the area over the years.

The project will use written memories, photos, objects and volunteers will also speak to people about their own personal experiences.

Lottery funding was used last year to put together Then and Now - Teens Through the Time Warp, which showed teenage life from the 1950s to the present day.

The cash was used to purchase parts of the exhibition including some of the graphics and to pay for marketing material and the services of a professional designer.
