Our Latest News

On 5th February 2018 the Westerham Society was delighted to launch its Heritage website. Packed with historical photographs, stories and records about Westerham, the project to create the website was four years in the making. Beginning with seeking expertise, gaining Lottery funding and collecting and organising data, the efforts culminated in the delivery of a wonderful product for current and future generations of Westerham. Congratulations to Bill Curtis and the team for gathering wonderful historic material from Westerham families and sources beyond and for organising this into such an attractive and fascinating resource. New stories and images about local people and events continue to be added to the Heritage Collection.

The Society installed a new computer terminal in Westerham Library to allow public visitors to explore the Heritage website content at any time during opening hours. We hope that this service will make the information available to a wider audience and will encourage more people with historical records, stories or pictures about life in Westerham to get in touch and share their information.

The Society made its regular donation to finance the Christmas Tree on The Green and, in partnership with the Town Council, jointly funds the Winter Hanging Baskets display in the Town Centre. The 2022 Hanging Baskets Fund Raising Appeal generated a good response in terms of donations from Society Members and local businesses. A very colourful and welcoming floral display of hanging baskets was in place around the Town ahead of the special Platinum Jubilee Year celebrations.

The Society has produced ‘A Walk Around Westerham – Platinum Jubilee Year’ as a free guide leaflet for a Town Trail passing some of the historic buildings and sites of interest. The guides will be available at Society events and there are also some available from the Westerham Hall entrance area. Alternatively please contact us directly for a copy.
