UPCOMING EVENTS in 2024
Third Monday of the month, in 2024
Review of 2023
We have continued to host a variety of speakers and are putting together a programme for next year. The photo shows our intrepid Treasurer investigating the village’s Victorian water supply. Our research will be published in due course.
We designed the new Spring Close information board and paid 2/3 of the cost with a Polish organisation paying the remainder.
Former Rector Percy Hooson’s WW1 War Dairies are being transcribed and we assisted Tinwell in their research of the cross he brought back from France.

Not interested in History don’t worry!
Although the History group generally works behind the scenes collecting and recording our village history, our talks are extremely varied. This year for example we are having talks on Vintage Clothing, Building Crossrail and the founding of the Anna’s Hope Charity. The June meeting features Anglian Water who will do a presentation followed by questions! This talk will be free. We always welcome new members or the casual visitor so pop along.
If there is any knowledge about Spring Close or other village history, please contact us, so that it can be recorded.
To document and promote the local history, that is all around us
