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.

Our thanks to St. Mark's Church and Peter Burden for making us so welcome for the two days of our Autumn exhibition. We met some excellent new friends and contacts. Membership is now up to 85. And to top it all, the weather was kind for Dave Hart's walk around the lanes and byways.
We received confirmation on 6th June 2017 that our Clock Tower War Memorial has been Grade 2 listed by Historic England. It was the intention in 1919 to provide a long lasting memorial to remember the people of Worle who gave their lives, and to count the seconds of Peace. Members of Worle History Society, Peter Johnson and Frank Gosden, have worked tirelessly to secure the listing.
Historic England reference number is 1446117. The link below gives details of the listing: https://historicengland.org.uk/listing/the-list/list-entry/1446117
Our research team have been working hard on investigating the 43 memorials within the Church building and presented their findings at the meeting in St Martin's Church. Windows, plaques, tablets were all discussed.
Very good attendance on the hottest June day for 40 years. The picture shows our chairman, Bob Champ and Rev. Anne Farmer melting over the font.
Sincere thanks to the research team for all their exceptional work. The teas went down well, too.
£6 each - such a bargain. Brilliant presents for folk who are forced to live elsewhere!! This is the last year that our great calendar boys are carrying out this task. Sincere thanks to Tony and John for all their wonderful efforts and for the money it has raised for the society. Pop into Skidmore's in the High Street or contact us by phone or email.
Raye Green stepped in and gave a talk, with over 60 slides about Worle High Street from Lawrence Road to Ebdon Road. Members were able to add their own information, which was great. Thank you everyone.
