Penpont Heritage Centre


Our next Event will be an exhibition on the First World War taking place from Sunday 12 November to Monday 20 November, 2017 each afternoon from 1.00 - 3.00pm.

The exhibition will cover research gathered by two members of the Group, Gladys Cuttle and Sandy Hall on soldiers who fought and died during the war who came from the parishes of Penpont, Keir, and Tynron. The group would also like to honour the people who returned home from the war.

"We are planning to show a range of letters, postcards, medals, artefacts etc. from the Great War" said Sophia Harkness, Chairperson, "so, if anyone has any keepsakes or memorabilia from that time and would be willing to loan it to us for the duration of the exhibition, it would be greatly appreciated".

If you have any artefacts, keepsakes or memorabilia you would like to loan us for this exhibition, please contact us buy clicking here.
