Here you will be able find out how to contact the committee, and updates on our latest research and projects. Our monthly meetings have been suspended until such time as the Coronavirus crisis is over. We are still researching and archiving our findings. You can still join and get involved. Contact details in right hand column!!
Membership fee is £5 a year, renewable at the AGM in September each year, with the exception of 2020. We hope to renew memberships in March 2021. Normally, 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. Without meeting fees and our calendar sales, we have a much reduced income and may well need to make further adjustments in the months to come.
We all happily research the last 1000 years in Worle, live happily with our memories, enjoy the here and now and plan for the future. Such fun.

Research Team is getting together again. Online, of course. We shall be considering new projects. One suggestion is to reconstruct village Worle in the 1850s for an exhibition. This photo is a favourite corner of Worle which features the Valiant Soldier, the cottages and The Bell House. Censuses, maps, newspaper cuttings all calling to us.
Any other suggestions?
Brian's "Chronological History" of Weston-super-Mare runs to 440 A4 pages with a full 3 part index of people/places/things.

Brian has won the 2020 BALH Award for Personal achievment. Hurrah!
Sincere thanks to all our contributors to the fundraising book for Weston Hospital Staff Wellbeing fund. The fund has received £525 already and we have covered our costs. The remaining books will be available on sale in Weston Museum shops when it re-opens and in Weston Hospice shops across Weston and Worle.
We are hoping to arrange a get together for our 50 contributors when and if we get through the pandemic!
