SANDHURST HISTORICAL SOCIETY

Council

The Society was formed by a small group of enthusiasts who wished to meet locally to discuss various historical topics and to make occasional visits to places of particular interest.     Meetings are held on the last Thursday of each month (except August & December) and  commence at 7.30pm.  Refreshments are available after the presentation or talk when there is opportunity for  a discussion  before the meeting is closed around 9.00pm.      

Sandhurst Historical Society was formed in 1996  and since then has held regular talks and discussions at the Sandhurst Community Hall as well as conducting some research on local topics and making visits to sites of particular interest.  Our membership fees are £12 a year (visitors pay £2 to attend a meeting) Have a look at our speakers' programme and join us.  You will be warmly welcomed.
