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 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 get in touch and share their information.

The 2020 summer hanging baskets floral displays around the Town received positive feedback and we appreciated the personal donations received from Society Members and others to assist with the financing the floral displays. There were, however, fewer hanging baskets outside commercial premises as only a few businesses subscribed in the light of the difficult times experienced by the business community. The Society made it’s regular donation to the cost of Christmas Tree on The Green and in early February there will be winter hanging baskets displays installed around the Town Centre.

As we are in another period of national lockdown restrictions due to the Covid pandemic all plans for Society gatherings will, by necessity, remain on hold for the early months of 2021. Hopefully with the vaccination programme progressing restrictions will be gradually eased in the coming months and the Society will be able to consider resuming some events sometime in the second quarter of the year, but we will have to see how things evolve.
