To enable the inclusion of speakers on other topics of interest and the organization of more diverse events the society will now be known as the EAST HADDON VILLAGE SOCIETY.
Talks are held once a month, except for August and December, on a Thursday evening in the Village Hall. Doors open at 7.30 p.m. for an 8 p.m start. Currently there are approximately 55 members and new members are always welcomed into a friendly atmosphere .
Membership is £15 per annum or £3 for a casual visit. Membership forms are available on the History Society website http://ehhs.org.uk/index.html.
Why not join us for an enjoyable evening with a friendly group of people, a glass of wine and a talk presented by a subject matter expert. Talks will be advertised in the village and in the monthly newsletter.
