Our AGM for 2021 has been delayed from its usual slot in February. The delayed AGM will be held on Tuesday May 25th at 7pm in the Town Hall Bellingham. We have chosen larger premises as the usual Methodist Hall is not yet available and a larger premises allows for better social distancing.
Social distanced seating will apply and refreshments will be limited to tea/coffee/wine (in take away cups) and biscuits. Please wear a face mask or shield unless you are exempt.
We re-open for the season (subject to usual Government restrictions and caveats) on Wednesday 19th May.
We will be opening Wednesday to Sunday (inclusive) 10am to 4pm for the forseeable future plus Bank Holidays.
We are holding our Annual Classic and Vinatage Vehicle Rally on Sunday 23th of April 2023 between 10am and 4pm.
This popular event is an important fund raising event for the Heritage Centre.
In recent years we have attracted over 70 vehicles comprising cars, tractors, motor cycles and commercial vehicles. During the day a "lighthearted" competition is held with visitors and exhibitors asked to vote for the best turned out vehicle. The winner receives a cup and trophy which are donated by friends of the late Ian McInnes, who was an enthusiastic supporter of the event.
If you are an exhibitor application forms for entries can be downloaded here.

The interruption to normal opening has caused us to reschedule our seasonal exhibitions planned for the next few years. Here is our new schedule:
In the current Coronavirus pandemic and lcokdown we have unfortunately cancelled the annual "Classic and Vintage Vehicle Day" for this year. The Centre is also closed for the forseeable future.
