This blog will be the home of all things heritage – the Heritage of the YMCA, especially the Exeter Branch, the processes we are going through to develop this project over the next year, and why you or your organisation should be concerned with your heritage!
The project, Heritage Lottery Funded (thanks!), hopes to expand not only our understanding of our own heritage but also the general awareness of the impact that the YMCA in Exeter has had in the town in its considerable history.
At 170 years old this year we have quite a lot to talk about, we are one of the oldest YMCA’s in the UK, but we won’t solely be discussing Exeter history – we will delve into the YMCA role during the wars, the national – and international – story, as well as heritage matters and keeping everyone up to date with all the things we are getting up to surrounding the project!
So check back every Tuesday for a new snapshot of Exeter History you never knew you needed!
