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.
