Due to the coronavirus outbreak the meetings in June and July 2020 have had to be cancelled.
However, we have some new articles for you to read, two of them relating to Dunkirk and the others more general in theme. The first article is a general overview of the 80th anniversary of Dukirk. The second article is a personal story of the events in France, as seen by Arthur Lambert when he was aged 21 called One Man’s Story.
Our committee has also put together a medley of experiences or thoughts during lockdown with some pictures – perhaps you can work out whose is whose?
Finally we have an article relating to the original Ring O’Bells pub near the parish church.
Weaverham History Society promotes the study of and interest in history and archaeology with particular reference to Weaverham and the surrounding area.
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. Meetings are free to members of Weaverham History Society, children and students. Visitors are requested to pay £2 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
