Heritage Champions Network

The network began in early 2021 and aims to support those working in or with a National Governing Body of Sport (NGBs). Members are often at the beginning or newly underway in the collection and preservation of their heritage or have heritage as just one part of a wider role.

Although the membership come from a wide range of sports the group are often facing  the same challenges so at the meetings we discuss common issues, how people have overcome them and share good practice.

The group will operate through an e-discussion group, virtual meetings and, when restrictions allow, workshops run by members of the group, and physical study days. To join the network please email fran@sportingheritage.org.uk with the subject heading “Heritage Champions Network”.

Details of the next meeting

Date: Tuesday 17th May 10am – 11.30am

Focus: In addition to the Sporting Heritage and member updates, each of our meetings will have a focus for our group discussions.

The focus for our May meeting is two pronged:

  • We will continue the topic started in our last meeting about collecting memories, primarily focusing on oral history, but also discussing alternative approaches.
  • Belinda Scarlett will be joining us to talk about this year’s National Sporting Heritage Day, how to get involved and the range of resources and support available.

If you have ideas for future meeting topics please contact Fran on fran@sportingheritage.org.uk

Booking: It is free to attend our network meetings but we will now be asking attendees to book via eventbrite.
