The Westerham Society

On 5th February 2018 the Westerham Society launched of our Heritage website with historical records about the town of Westerham. The Heritage project was four years in the making, seeking expertise, gaining Lottery funding, collecting and organising data and providing a wonderful product for current and future generations of Westerham.

Congratulations to Bill Curtis and the team for the collection of historic material from Westerham families and other sources and posting data on the website. New stories and images about local people and events will continue to be added to the Heritage Collection.

The Society has installed a new computer terminal in Westerham Library which will 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 share their information.

The Society’s AGM was held on 22nd March 2019. The existing Officers and Committee Members were re-elected for another year. The Chairman’s report highlighted the positive achievements over the last year in terms of enhancing the social interaction within the Society, increasing the membership numbers and the continued community support activities. The same focus will be maintained this year, along with a similar range of social events.

On 6th May 2019 the Society held another traditional Beating the Bounds event, combined with a Fair on the Green. This year the Fair on the Green was a joint venture with the Edenbridge and Westerham Rotary and the Westerham Town Partnership. Positive feedback was received from both stallholders and visitors.

The Society has once again raised the funds for the annual hanging baskets floral display around the Town. This year’s display has received positive feedback. The Society has also made it’s regular donation to the cost of Christmas Tree on the Green.
