Lesley Burton was involved in the very first pilot of European Heritage Days held in England, in Gosport in 1992! Two years later Heritage Open Days was officially adopted. She has remained engaged with it ever since. As a founder of this amazing national event, our local organising body have been proud to honour Lesley as Patron of Gosport Heritage Open Days.
