Hucknall Heritage Society
Incorporating Hucknall Local History Group
Next Meeting - Monday September 12th - speaker to be confirmed (no meeting in August)
Hucknall Heritage Society was formed in 1984 with the aim of providing a regular series of meetings to educate and entertain members by providing talks and presentations on subjects with a local heritage or historical theme. The group also keep an eye on the many heritage buildings in Hucknall and the surrounding areas and where possible lobby councils and developers to try to preserve as much of the areas rich heritage as possible.
In 2013 the Society merged with the Hucknall Local History Group (formerly Hucknall Library Local History Group). This move was seen as beneficial to both groups as many of their aims were broadly the same and the ability to share a room booking for both meetings meant a 50% reduction in room hire costs. Both groups meet on the 2nd Monday of the month with the Local History Group meeting taking place from 6pm until 7pm and then the Heritage Society meeting is in the same room from 7:30pm until 9pm.
Our regular meetings take place at Central Methodist Church in Baker Street, Hucknall on the 2nd Monday of the month from January to May and from September to November. The Heritage Society do not normally meet during June, July, August or December.
The meetings generally take the form of an entertaining and educational talk or presentation by a knowledgeable speaker who will cover a subject which will be relative to the history or heritage of Hucknall and the surrounding area. The meetings start at 7:30pm and last until approximately 9pm and you are welcome to join us where you will meet a friendly group of locals and newcomers to the area who are all passionate about preserving and enjoying our rich heritage. There is a small admission fee to cover our costs (currently £2 per person) and annual membership of the society costs just £5 per year.
