Voices from the Voluntary Sector

From Friday 11 March 2022 to Saturday 9 April, Lowewood Museum and the CVS for Broxbourne and East Herts invite you to come along and see the Voices from the Voluntary Sector exhibition. Come and see the untold stories from ordinary people serving the Broxbourne community in many different ways over the last 50 years!

There are many stories to be told in Broxbourne around the history of the community and charity sector. Funded by the National Lottery Heritage Fund, the aim of this project is to research this history and produce an exhibition to celebrate the lives and contributions made to the community by ordinary people. This aspect of local history has never been researched and documented, and we consider it timely to do this now, as many of the older residents who have had a major impact in the community are getting older. We wish to record this aspect of the social history of the area, to share our findings with current residents and ensure this is recorded for future generations.

Lowewood Museum is open from 10am to 4:30pm on Fridays and Saturdays.
