It's going to be a busy Spring period for Buchanhaven Heritage Society.

The Buchanhaven Heritage Society is set for another busy period of events and exhibitions and it will all start on August 29 when the ‘Vikings’ arrive at the centre between 10am and 4pm.

Young and not so young can have their photographs taken with the Viking warriors as they arrive at the centre and once in the children can have fun with the local Coastal Ranger and her marine life table; have their face transferred onto the body for a super hero, or have their face painted as they so wish.

Loads more will be on show on the day, but this will be a great day for the young folk and the team would be delighted to see as many as possible come along dressed as their favourite super hero.

On September 19 between 12noon and 4pm there will be the return of the centre’s ‘vintage teas’ and as ever this is expected to draw a largecrowd on the day.

Tickets are available at the Centre on August 29 and from team members, but entry can be paid on the day.

On October 31 their will be a special Hallowe’en event at the centre .

This will be a fun-packed day for the whole family, with some special frights on the day for those brave enough to come along.

On November 28 the team will be officially switching on their Christmas light display and they are currently working towards a special surprise on the day, which they are holding for the meantime as a closely guarded secret.

There is much more currently under the planning stage, but the team hope for large turnouts for the events just announced and as ever entry is free,

However, donations are always very welcome to support the centre’s refurbishment funds.

Commenting on the busy autumn period ahead, society chair, Alex Geddes, said: “The team have been working very hard recently behind the scenes and without this level of dedication such events would not be possible.

“Many have enjoyed our events on the day and this makes all the hard work worthwhile.

“But I would like to go on record to say a massive thanks to the whole team for their continued high level of dedication not only to the centre, but to the wider area.

“I am very proud to be part of such a great team and look forward to a very bright future in the Buchanhaven area,” he added.
