MILL HILL HISTORICAL SOCIETY | The Friday Feature April 1 2016

Wednesdayk in the Friday Feature we are looking at one of the oldest societies in Mill Hill - THE MILL HILL HISTORICAL SOCIETY founded in 1929.



For residents of the area whether new or old this is a group that it is well worth investigating and joining up.

Julia Haynes from The Mill Hill Historical Society told us about the Society and its plans for this year :


"The Historical Society is well established in Mill Hill.  Our aims are to research our local past, make Mill Hill’s story known and enthuse Members in history generally.
Our Summer Programme of full day and half day outings runs from April to September.  A selection of our visit this summer will be to Rainham Hall in Essex, Bosworth Battlefield Centre, Alrisford & Hinton Ampner and Holkham Hall; more locally we are also visiting St Lawrence’s Church in Little Stanmore, London Guildhall and there will be a Thames Riverside Walk.
We also have a winter programme of Lectures from October to March in Trinity Church, Mill Hill Broadway, details can be found from mid-September on our website http://www.millhill-hs.org.uk/ "
Forthcoming events include :
Monday 11 April - Tour of Watermen and Lightermen's Hall
Tuesday 17 May - Tour of Chelsea Physic Gardens
Tuesday 7 June - Rainham Hall
Thursday 30 June - Tour of British Library Conservation Department
Tuesday 12 July - Coach to Bosworth Battlefield Centre
Tuesday 19 July - Riverside Walk with Anne-Marie Craven, Blue Badge Guide
All of these events can accessed by going to the website and joining the Society. 
From October to March there are free lectures held in Trinity Church, Mill hill Broadway on the second Wednesday of the month. 
To join is only £6 a year (or £10 for a family) and the form is here    This is exceptional value for an organisation which holds so many events and so many free events.  They have trips during August including one to the amazing church in Stanmore!
The website is full of photos and some excellent information about the history of the area and A Walk Along the Ridgeway.  In itself this article would provide a fantastic afternoon/day of exploring in the area.
As we said at the beginning of this feature for residents of the area whether new or old this is a group that it is well worth investigating and joining up.  It is ideal for families to join and a way to meet people and learn about this lovely area.
If you do join if you go on one of the events then please write about it and send us photos and we will publish them on Broadway News. We want to hear about local events and from local people.
Thank you Julia for giving us all the information. If you have a band or project or organisation that should be included in the Friday Feature please get in touch on our e mail address.
