Welcome to our Website. Founded in 1998 the Society aims to promote interest in the history of Galleywood and the surrounding areas.  The Society works in partnership with Galleywood Heritage Centre and its Archive Group www.galleywoodheritagecentre.org.uk

The Society runs an annual programme of talks by both members and invited speakers and with over 100 members in all, these are always well attended. Membership renewal is due at the November meeting at a current cost of £10pa (£9 if paid by standing order).  Visitors are also most welcome to attend any event for a modest charge of £3.

A newsletter 'Past Times' is published quarterly, with articles of local historical interest contributed mainly by members.  Copies are sent to all members. Past copies can be viewed on the Newsletter page.
