Heritage Centre needs your help

Aylsham Heritage Centre is appealing for your help to save it.

Like many other local museums and tourist attractions, the centre is closed during the covid-19 pandemic and with no visitors or events they are unable to generate any income – but still have bills to pay.

Geoff Sadler, chair of the AHC management committee said: “We want to secure the future of the Heritage Centre through to next spring when we hope we will be able to start running our successful fundraising events again.”

The centre plays an important part in sharing the history of the town, which dates back to 500AD and was listed in the Domesday Book.

The centre gives visitors, local people and schoolchildren unique access to valuable local history material and to look back at how the town was shaped.

Every year, around 2,200 visitors pop in to the centre, which is housed in the parish rooms.

“We know many of you are also suffering financial hardship but if you could spare a little to save the Heritage Centre, we would be very grateful,” said Geoff.

There are several ways to donate:

  • Via JustGiving
  • Via the centre’s website
  • Or by cheque – made out to Aylsham Community Partnership and sent to 49 Soame Close, Aylsham, Norfolk, NR116JF.
