The Heritage Group operates within the W.H.Allen Engineering Association and was established in 2008.
The Terms of Reference of this Group are to promote awareness of Allen Engineering and to encourage the preservation of the history and heritage of W.H. Allen and associated companies.
To this end the Heritage Group strives to develop a relationship with relevant preservation organisations who are seen to be actively working to preserve and restore important items of Allen heritage.
To assist these organisations in their endeavours the Heritage Group raises and distributes funds for specific Allen heritage projects. They also provide assistance to those organisations by way of Work Parties and information.
To show the Association’s appreciation of their efforts, the Heritage Group considers applications for the presentation of Allen Heritage Awards.
The Heritage Group promotes the safe keeping of any records of historic importance and provides a forum for the exchange of heritage information with individuals or other heritage organisations
The Group is governed by a Committee of five members of the Association and is currently Chaired by David Allen, a great grandson of William Henry Allen.
