Once the holiday season finished, the Heritage Centre used to close for the winter. Preparation for the coming season was done mainly from home. However, the space has to be heated and also checked regularly throughout the winter and it was decided to make the space available to members on Friday afternoons, when they could become involved in the museum "housekeeping" or use it as a study area. "Housekeeping" involves checking items are where they should be, the condition of items, transcribing old documents, general maintenance etc. Because we are "open", members of the public do drop in to see us and are welcome to do so, but need to be aware that the displays are being dismantled and rebuilt for the coming season. A lot of information is still readily available, and an experienced person is always there to assist.

The centre holds a large selection of images relating to the local area. In the coming year we are planning to exhibit a lot of our more recent photographs, hoping to name as many people in the images as possible. In some cases, then and now images will capture changes withing the local environs.
