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.

 

The Society changed its name to Stelling Minnis and Upper Hardres History society in 2014.

 

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