Welcome to Worle History Society

 

Here you will be able to find dates of our monthly open meetings, how to contact the committee, and updates on our latest research and projects.

 


Membership fee is £5 a year, renewable at the AGM in September each year. Members pay £1 at each meeting to help pay for the hall and boost funds. Visitors are always welcome at meetings and other activities for a modest £2 contribution.

 

We hope that you like this new layout for our website.  It will allow us to add more pages so that more of our archives can be shared with everyone.  It took a couple to weeks to sort out, but seems to be Ok now, fingers crossed.

 

Just click on the menu bar, at the top of each page, to change pages.
