Weaverham History Society promotes the study of and interest in history and archaeology with particular reference to Weaverham and the surrounding area.
For some years now the Weaverham Trust has been issuing Christmas Cards with local scenes painted of different parts of the village. The paintings capture the spirit of Christmas. They are painted by a local artist Mr. A. Daffern and deserve both another look and appreciation of the skill that has gone into each scene depicting life as we would all like to remember it in our village community.

The Society, Meetings, Membership, Visits
The Society meets at Weaverham Primary Academy, Northwich Road, Weaverham, Northwich, Cheshire, CW8 3BD.
Meetings are held on the second Tuesday of each month and we invite a guest speaker to talk to us on a topic of historical or archaeological interest, though sometimes the subjects range further afield. You can see what’s planned on our Programme page.
Membership is £15.00 per year with renewals in September. Payments can be made by BACS sort code 09-01-29 a/c 26685458. Meetings are free to members of the Weaverham History Society, children and students. Visitors are requested to pay £3 at each meeting.
We also organise highly enjoyable visits to local places of interest in spring and summer usually by coach from the village and we seem to have started a tradition of having a yearly canal boat trip as well. The Society normally invests in the services of Blue Badge guides on our visits. We also have a very enjoyable Christmas event every year, the talk commonly having a seasonal flavour.
We have articles on a range of topics, mainly about Weaverham, but also covering the surrounding areas. Although not a dedicated family history group, we do have some information on local families, and are always interested to hear from you.
We are continually developing our Archives and we have an array of items (objects, maps, and photos). We are always grateful to receive any contributions.
As we expand our new website you will be able to see some of what we have by visiting our Weaverham Archives page.
The Weaverham History Society also has a Facebook page.
We launched this website in January 2016, but while we move things across you can still find the old website at http://history.weaverham.org.uk/index2015.htm

Postponed from December 2020, we can now present Elizabeth Morris, a performance storyteller, with A Christmas Carol. You may remember we have had Elizabeth before when she portrayed a young Cheshire girl born and living in poverty. It was a most moving performance; so we do hope that you can join us for this Christmas themed event.
This meeting will be held at the Owley Wood Recreation Club on Barrymore Road, Weaverham, CW8 3LS. As we are serving a meal, numbers are limited and the event is open to ticket holders only. If you wish to buy a ticket at £10 a head, please contact Robin Shinkfield, our Treasurer, on 01606 854957 or email the Society.
