Newhaven Heritage, which operates this site,  was founded as a charity to promote and preserve the rich heritage of Newhaven.  It is leading plans to acquire and develop the school as a heritage centre and community hub. We want Victoria Primary school to be reborn as the Newhaven Heritage Centre.  Owned and run by the people of Newhaven, for the benefit of local people, it will  meet their needs and wants.  See  ‘‘Our’ Centre’ for more information.

See Our Community page for details of the Memories Project.

VOLUNTEERS  REQUIRED

For Reminiscence Training

As a result of the Heritage Lottery Funded “Memories Project” created for Victoria Primary School (see “Our Community” for details), a Reminiscence Pocket was specially created for free loan to care homes and Senior Citizen groups.


To get the best out of the experience, the interaction between a trained reminiscence worker and the end user is invaluable.  Would you be interested in reminiscence work?


Volunteers are required to be trained in reminiscence practice.  It’s a very satisfying experience. As one Care Manager said
‘There was a happy energy in the room after you left and we look forward to your return.’

The generosity of the Heritage Lottery Fund is acknowledged in funding of the Memories Project

“Spring iz sprung,

Da grass iz riz,

I wonder where dem boidies iz?

Da little boids is on da wing.

Ain’t dat absoid?

Da little wings iz on da boid.


Spring iz sprung, da buds do break;

Spring iz sprung an’ nature wakes.

Spring iz sprung, da winter’s gone,

And now we join dat happy throng –


The Newhaven Community Gardeners


Come and join us!”
