REMEMBERyour membership will help in the preservation of Darwen’s heritage for future generations.  All of the work at the Darwen Heritage Centre is carried out by volunteers, and we rely on donations, grants, room hire fees and membership fees to be able to continue our valuable work.  This year we have provided Community Support to local schools and social groups including Guides, Scouts and Brownies.  More recently we have started reminiscence sessions with vulnerable adults, providing dementia support with our range of artefacts and pictorial evidence.  We are always open to suggestions, so if you have a need for our services do get in touch.
