The Westerham Society

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. We will undertake another round of fund raising for the 2022 Summer Hanging Baskets with donations from Society Members and local businesses. We look forward to being able to provide another attractive and welcoming floral display around the Town for this special Platinum Jubilee Year.
