The Heritage Centre
In 2009, members of Sanday’s Community Council, Community Association, Tourism Association, and Development Group felt that there was a need for a Heritage Centre on the island; a place that should be of interest to residents and visitors alike.
A small group was formed, and a temporary centre proved successful, attracting around 500 visitors during a four-month summer season. This year, thanks to the generosity of Myra Stockton, the temporary centre is bigger and better, located in her own home.
The Heritage Group looks forward to finding a permanent home where artefacts, as well as photographs and a sound archive, can be stored and made available. Meanwhile, we hope very much that you enjoy browsing among the 2012 displays.
On one table there are various items for sale; please use the honesty boxes provided. We don’t yet have enough volunteers to have the Centre staffed at all times; if you live on Sanday and would like to give some of your time, please contact Tony Lee (600-274) Any donations will be gratefully received and used to help fund additional display equipment.
