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.

Join local bookbinder Cass for a creative workshop at Newhaven Primary - for children and adults. We'll take inspiration from Newhaven Heritage Community Garden to make a set of nature stamps and print our own paper. We'll learn how to bind our hand-printed pages together using a simple but effective stitch.
You'll leave the workshop with your own set of stamps (that you can use again and again) and at least one finished book, plus the know-how to make more at home.

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.
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.’
