The Sibfords History Society

Scripted initials

The Sibfords Society began in 1993 and changed its name to The Sibfords History Society in 2019. Meetings are held nine times each year. These include talks of historical interest and external visits during the summer. We concentrate mainly on the local area but are occasionally happy to invite speakers from further afield. We have an archive room where we preserve evidence for future generations.

For further information, please contact Diana on 01993 811 682 or Clive on 780 475, or email
