The Howard Garden Social and Daycare Centre was built on September 3rd 1953

With over 60 years of history behind it, the centre has a rich and storied past that reaches throughout Letchworth. From photographs and articles to certificates and letters with other organisations the collection is an interesting window into many aspects of the town's development.

The various items on display have been archived a number of times physically however now we are able to present them to the public in a digital format so that everyone may be able to enjoy them.

If you have any thing that you feel adds to the collection or covers a section of the centres history that we may have missed we would love to hear from you. Such submissions can be made via email to and we will look at and consider the items suitability for inclusion.
