The Fordingbridge Historical Society

The Fordingbridge Historical Society is a non-profit making society, affiliated to the British Association for Local History.The Society promotes interest in all aspects of local and National History with a full and programme of Winter lectures from November to March by experts in their field followed by Summer visits in April to September to places of local and national interest and significance. We also host two member social events each year: a buffet with wine at the AGM and a lunch in the Summer at a carefully selected location.The Society initiates and becomes involved in local activities that the committee believes to be in within its aims, and awards two history prizes annually to students at the Burgate School and sixth Form complex.The Society mixes education with entertainment and social activities for the benefit of members with a representative committee to ensure these aims are met.We welcome new members and visitors to lectures and summer visits are always welcome for a small charge (in addition to visit charge)Contact number: Alastair Dalrymple Secretary 01425 653407
