On Tuesday 1st September 2020, HM Lord-Lieutenant Mrs Susie Sheldon, officially opened the West Wight Heritage Centre in Freshwater.
Over a number years the Freshwater and Totland Archive group led by Linda Barnes had existed in various locations. During that time the volume of
information increased, along with the interest in the past and there had been an increasing need to make the information more accessible and secure. Further information on the project can be found here.
