Ditton Heritage Centre brings the past back to life

Ditton Heritage Centre can now display photographs showing life in bygone days, thanks to Peter Homewood who awarded the centre £945 

The money came from his KCC Combined Member Grant and will pay for the enlarging and framing of iconic photographs donated by local residents.

Ditton Heritage Centre moved into the old Ditton Church of England Junior School, built in 1893, after it was left vacant when the school transferred to new premises nearby in New Road over 25 years ago.

Opened in September 2014, the centre is run by volunteers and now holds a wide range of displays and artefacts and has restored part of the building back to a Victorian classroom.

Some of the photographs to be displayed show children outside the school as far back as the 1800s and will add to the visual impact that visitors will enjoy when they first enter the building, particularly school children on educational visits.
