Leigh Heritage Centre

The Heritage Centre stands in the Centre of the Old Town in the old Smithy. Along with many other buildings in the Old Town the Smithy was purchased by the Borough Council many years ago with a view to a development which never took place and it was allowed to fall into disrepair until the Leigh Society formed and decided to rescue the building.

Group Contact Guidelines

In October 2019 all group contacts were invited to a "thank you" meeting when the opportunity to discuss a number of U3A issues was given.  There was some lively discussion and had time not been against us, it could have gone on for a lot longer.  It is always pleasing to know members have plenty to say and lots of ideas.  A record of the meeting along with a copy of the fun quiz that was set can be found below:
