Swavesey & District History Society


The History Society meets on the third Tuesday of the month in The Global Environment Centre at Swavesey Village College. Our meetings, which start at 7.30 p.m. are very friendly, attract a big audience and are open to everyone who has any interest in local history. No need to book so just walk in and you will be made most welcome.


There is an annual subscription, but single meetings can be attended for a small cost. If you want further information about the Society contact our Secretary, Carolyn Redmayne, on 01954 230037.
