Established in 1970, our thriving and friendly society quickly grew its interest base and membership.

We meet on the second Tuesday evening of each month (except for January, July and August) at the New West End Social Club in Winlaton from 7.30pm. Meetings usually disperse by 9pm.

We meet to enjoy a talk by an invited guest speaker, always interesting, often illustrated and frequently highly entertaining! Take a look at our events calendar for upcoming talks.

Are you interested in local history?

We are always looking for new members and would currently appreciate some younger blood joining us and helping run the society to secure its future.
