The Friends

Who are The Friends and what do we do?

The Friends are a supporter organisation dedicated to assisting and promoting the Dean Heritage Centre in any way we can. All our surplus funds over and above our very minimal running costs are donated for items or projects at the Centre. From time to time, amongst other things, we do some fund raising, make appeals, and attend outside events. Volunteering (either at the Centre or on our Friends committee) is very much welcomed but not an essential part of being a Friend.

What are the benefits?

New Friends are entitled to 50% off every entry to the DHC, and a discount on goods purchased in the shop, on production of their subscription card.

Each Friends household receives 4 Newsletters per year.
