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.

Membership costs £12 per year, to be paid at the AGM in March. Guests are welcome on payment of an entry fee of £3 per person, to be paid at the door (schoolchildren free). Free tea and coffee is usually served after the meeting.

For further information, please contact Diana on 788 214 or David on 788 242, or email
