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.


75th anniversary of ending of World War 2 (as the Centre is closed due to the Covid-19 Pandemic we have staged this exhibition digitally on the website for the VE Day 75 year celebrations).

The interruption to normal opening has caused us to reschedule our seasonal exhibitions planned for the next few years. Here is our new schedule:

apologiesOur apologies in advance but on Thursday 10th October we will be closed for the day due to our 25th Anniversary celebrations which the majority of our volunteers and Trustees will be attending. We will be open as normal on every other day this month.

We are now closed for the season. We re-open on Wednesday 1st April with three new exhibitions and a book launch planned for 2020. We hope to see you again during the year.

A landmark day dawned on Friday 7th June 2019 when, on the invitation of vice chairman Wesley Turnbull, Guy Opperman MP formally opened the Heritage Centre as Edie Lyons had done 25 years earlier at Shellcroft on 10th June 1994. Edie had worked for local photographer, W. P. Collier, in the 1920s and it was a collection of his pictures that prompted Dorothy Bell and a group of local enthusiasts to create the Heritage Centre.
