Burton Latimer Civic Centre

Burton Latimer’s Civic Centre is named after Harold Mason – a local man who sailed in the convoys across the Arctic Ocean between Britain and the Soviet Union during the Second World War.

Thousands of sailors were killed during the missions – which Winston Churchill is said to have described as ‘the worst journey in the world’.

In 2014, at the age of 89, Harold received a Ushakov Medal from the Russian ambassador in recognition of his service.

The Centre provides a home for a number of locally-based organisations, services and activities – including…

  • The council office and council chamber
    Town council meetings take place on the 1st Tuesday of the month in the council chamber – which occupies a large, multi-purpose space at the heart of the building.
  • Burton Latimer Heritage Society
    The Heritage Society – and its museum – is located in an accessible suite of rooms within the new Centre.
