The Friends of Havering Museum were formed by a group of like minded individuals who thought the borough ought to have a museum to celebrate its history and culture.

They were part of the original driving force to secure a museum for the community and the dream became a reality on May 26, 2010.

This was the culmination of 10 years of hard work and at times it appeared to be a never ending struggle.
