New Heritage Centre

Heritage Centre

…With plans in place to establish a West Wight Heritage Centre the group is excited at the prospect of a secure and permanent home, with the backing of Freshwater Parish Council.


A project led by Councillor Adrian Harris will provide facilities to display, store and access the amazing material donated by current and former residents world-wide, with future plans including talks, research opportunities, school/group visits and chats over a cuppa to learn from the experiences and knowledge of older members of our communities.

Delayed due to the covid-19 crisis it’s hoped that legal proceedings will be completed and equipment purchased and installed for an Autumn opening; meanwhile we’re looking to raise funds for said equipment, and to recruit supporters to share in the ‘ARCHIVE EXPERIENCE’  … Local knowledge, computer/IT skills, photographic know-how…EVERYONE has something to contribute, ALL are most welcome and with YOUR support we look forward to building a local archive to be proud of.
