What’s New

Local History Records: Volume 112 of Local History Records should be with most members by now.

The Forthcoming Events page has been updated as far as July or August 2024. Please watch this space for last minute changes, one which is a change of date for the first pub history group meeting (now 13 April).

The 68th Annual General Meeting of the Bourne Society will take place in the Jenkins Centre, de Stafford School, at 7.00 pm on Wednesday, 6 March and will precede the forum talk. Refreshments will be served between the AGM and the talk.

Some of our publications have been dramatically reduced in price in an attempt to reduce existing stock. Please look for Special Offer on the Current Publications page (side menu).

We are delighted to announce that after a considerable amount of hard work both Kenley and Chaldon in the Village Histories series have been reprinted in editions of 50 copies. Please place your order (see Society Shop, top menu) before they all go. The Caterham volume sold out some time ago, but reprinting is proving problematic.
