Westerham Heritage Website Launch

The Westerham Society Committee is very excited to announce the launch of our Heritage website project. Check out the new site at http://www.westerhamheritage.org.uk

The Westerham Heritage project has been four years in the making, seeking expertise, gaining Lottery funding, collecting and organising data and providing a wonderful product for current and future Westerham generations.

Congratulations to Bill Curtis and his front line team of Jacs Taylor-Smith, Harry Planche, Louise Wood, Jenny Smith and Stuart Merrylees. Bill has chiefly been responsible for collection of historic material from Westerham families and other varied sources even from the days prior to this project.

Bill’s very modest message to us was :

“A soft-launch at 12.30 today saw 4 years prep – HLF application to design, build and populate – go live!  Well done to all involved.   1100 images are now on the site with lots of stories, anecdotes and quotes. Still lots of work to do, another 1200 images to go, and then there’s the newspapers from 1882 to 1949…”

Access also available via Westerham Library for all to use.

We hope you too enjoy the new product. Early comments on its ease of use and speed are very encouraging.
