The Construction Industry Training Board offered space at the college, and the heritage room displays stories, memorabilia, photographs, maps and drawings.

In September 2006 the Bircham Newton memorial, just outside the room, was unveiled, and last September the Docking memorial dedication ceremony took place. Fundraising continues to make essential improvements to the heritage room and to provide information boards in the vicinity of the memorial and the room.
