The Heritage project came about as there was a view within the community that other areas within the borough had created a museum or centre that acknowledged local historical events and individuals who had been part of past events and influenced the present.
In July 2012 a funding bid was put forward to the Heritage Lottery Fund that would allow the Institute to create a centre on behalf of the whole ward.
In February 2013 we received confirmation that our bid was successful and we were in a position to take the project forward. If you would like further information on the project
