We have been given a great start thanks to the personal intervention of Howard Platt. He has purchased the former Royal British Legion and has funded the remodelling of the building. 

We entered into a lease on the building in May 2017  and have been open since June 2017.

In the first two years we welcomed  around 15,000 visitors. 

Nevertheless we still need funds to secure the long term sustainability of the centre. Some of these will come from the activities of the centre when it is open and from visitor donations as well as support rom other groups and room hire. 

 We need  £20-£25K pa to keep the centre sustainable which is why friends are so important as a regular, reliable source of income.

The Heritage Centre will aim to generate more visitors who will stay longer, come back more often and tell their friends. You may like to follow the example of Ridgeway Residential .. £100. This will give you all of the benefits of a friend + you will feature on the website home page and the Welcome Board at the entrance to the centre for at least a year.  If that is more than you think the project is worth or than you can afford right now give what you like and most importantly please  back it up with a note of support on the next page.  Thanks for being part of it. 


It's  not just money we need. If you can offer time - even two hours a month - or have special skills - marketing, IT, local history knowledge, graphic design, admin, finance. we would love to hear from you.  We can offer you training in new skills  and the chance to be part of a rewarding project.
