Description

Newhaven Action Group — NAG — was founded in 2010 as a result of Edinburgh Council’s decision to close the popular museum next to the harbour and run by willing volunteers, many of whom were born and bred Newhaveners. NAG was superceded in 2015 by Newhaven Heritage Centre which is recognised as a Scottish registered charity. As the name implies, Newhaven Heritage is working to restore a MUSEUM, together with an EDUCATION CENTRE, CAFE, and COMMUNITY FACILITIES.

Newhaven Heritage seeks to preserve and protect the rich heritage of Newhaven on Forth, to educate and promote the village’s 500 year history and to raise funds to re-open independently the successful and popular museum which was closed by Council budget constraints. The museum will form the centre-piece of a new Newhaven Heritage Centre.

It is the ambitious goal of Newhaven Heritage to raise sufficient funds to purchase, and convert fit for purpose, a suitable property in Newhaven to become the Newhaven Heritage Centre.

The exciting plans for the Centre incorporate:

- A museum
- A cafe and shop
- Meeting rooms
- Genealogy centre
- Educational facilities

There will be disabled access to all areas, of course. The Museum will be an attraction for visitors; the Centre will be a facility for the community and a focus for Newhaven’s ex-pats and their families.
