Our Heritage Collection contains objects, photographs and records which have been kindly donated to us or collected over the years. The bulk of our Collection is stored and managed in our archives in Runcorn and Widnes as well as at our Activity Centres. Some of the items belong to Groups and are in their Headquarters.
We have a small volunteer team who look after items and work together to uncover and document our history.
We don’t currently have a Museum however we have a range of ways you can engage with the Collection including our online exhibitions. If you would like to donate an item or even just share a photo to include in either or physical or virtual Collection please visit our
