Heritage Plus Peacehaven and Newhaven

WRVS Heritage Plus has been operating in Peacehaven and Newhaven since 2007. Here you can see the range of activities we have run in the area. During the sessions participants have used their memories to produce a range of artifacts including textile hangings, postcards and books which can be seen in the Products section of this site. Heritage Plus activity sessions are delivered at various local venues in the Peacehaven and Newhaven area.

Material produced from our Newhaven activities can also be found on the community history site 'Our Newhaven' at http://www.ournewhaven.org.uk/
