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 Society made it’s regular donation to finance the Christmas Tree on The Green and, in partnership with the Town Council, has funded the Winter hanging baskets displays in the Town Centre.  Another successful fund raising has been completed for the 2021 Summer hanging baskets with donations from Society Members and local businesses. We thank all who have contributed to provide the Town with an attractive and welcoming floral display.

As the national lockdown restrictions are eased in the coming months the Society hopes to be able to consider resuming our regular events in the Autumn, but we will have to see how things evolve.

A Virtual Fair Poster Quiz will be held jointly with the Westerham Town Partnership over the period 29th May-6th June. The Quiz will be based on questions about 12 photographs from the Westerham Heritage Collection archives on A boards around the Town and also linked to old advertisements and photographs in some of the shop windows. The riddles can be solved with help from the www.westerhamheritage.org.uk website. Entrants will collect a quiz sheet from Larratt’s the Butcher and the completed forms must be returned to Larratt’s by 5pm Sunday 6th June latest. From the entries returned with fully correct answers four lucky winners will be randomly selected to receive a hamper prize.
