New Brighton Heritage and Information Centre.
The New Brighton Heritage and Information Centre at number 90 Victoria Road was opened by the Mayor of Wirral, Cllr Moira McLaughlin,on Saturday 16th July.
We are currently showing part of the Lifeboats On Call 24/7 photographic exhibition – a project undertaken by the Wallasey Amatuer Photographic Society together with the children of New Brighton Primary School showing a year in the life of the New Brighton Lifeboat Station.
Seen here are 3 of the school’s pupils – Niamh King, Carolyn Fraser and Matthew Brown showing their work to the Mayor.
The Centre hopes to gradually gather an exhibition of New Brighton’s fascinating history with the help of those people in the community who have New Brighton memorabilia which they wish to display.
We would be grateful if anyone who has such memorabilia would contact the Project Manager, Cathy Elwin, at the Centre on 639 3555 to arrange for it to be displayed.
The Centre is manned by volunteers and we would like to hear from anyone who can spare a couple of hours each week to help with this.
Our thanks to everyone who has been involved in getting the Centre up and running and to the many people who have visited it so far to talk to us about New Brighton past, present and future and who have left their helpful comments in our Visitors Book.
If you haven’t visited the Centre yet, please come along and tell us what you think and give us your suggestions as to how you would like to see it developed.
Opening times are 10.30 am till 4 pm Monday to Saturday and 11 am till 3 pm on Sundays.
We’d also like to thank all those volunteers who deliver the Walrus every March, May, September and December.
We’ve been doing this now for 16 years and consider it to be a great community achievement. If there is anyone out there who could spare some time to deliver a few we’d be glad to hear from you – ring 639 5798 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
The deadline for articles to go in the December Walrus is Friday 18th November.
