Trust invites locals to have a say on the building materials to be used for new Biggin Hill museum

By Luke King in Community News

LOCAL residents were invited to comment on the building materials to be used for a planned museum at St George’s RAF Chapel of Remembrance in Main Road, Biggin Hill.

Yesterday’s event, organised by the Biggin Hill Memorial Museum trust, allowed visitors to see the materials in daylight against the existing chapel structure.

On display were samples of bricks, internal timber, flooring and metal work. After discussing their choices with the trust team, guests were invited to complete a feedback form, which will be delivered to the planners.

Colin Hitchins, vice chair of the Biggin Hill Memorial Museum Trust, said: “The upcoming memorial museum is a celebration of our contribution to world history, providing an opportunity to instil local pride amongst all generations.

“Local people were again invited to influence the look and feel of the long-awaited museum and have their say on the diverse choice of building materials presented.

We want to preserve our heritage and we continue to work with the community on this exemplary project.”

He added: “Aesthetically, the museum design frames and complements the Grade II listed Chapel, a constant reminder of our unique place in history.”
