ABOUT THE SOCIETY:

 

Background

 

The Historical Society was originally formed in the 1980s by a keen local historian, the late Alwyne Hawkins. Members initiated a number of research projects including a buildings survey, studies of local wills and the like. A successful journal was also produced. Unfortunately the Society eventually went into decline, but it was kept alive in recent years by the then chairman, Peter Harrison, and a few other members. Now, with the availability of the clubroom in the new Stelling Minnis Village Hall, it is undergoing a revival. Its current projects include a survey of inscriptions in St Mary’s Churchyard, studies of census returns, combing through editions of the Kentish Post for local references, and the identification of famous people with local links. A computerised database is currently being set up. Annual membership costs £5 and anyone interested is welcome to join.

 

Meetings are at 7.30 pm on the second Thursday of each month at Stelling Minnis Village Hall.
