Tenterden and District Local History Society
The programme for 2017-2018 will include seven lectures on Monday evenings. All meetings will be held in the Zion Baptist Church, High Street, Tenterden on at 7.15pm for 7.30pm. There are Public Car Parks to the rear or in Station Road opposite which are free after 6pm. There will be two Thursday Coffee Mornings in St Mildred's Church Hall and a Wine and Cheese Evening at Tenterden Museum.
Membership is £6 per year. Visitors are welcome to attend, at a cost of £3 per meeting. Members receive a regular newsletter; members can attend coffee mornings when the fascinating Tenterden Scrapbooks are on view, and are also invited to join in with outings which are arranged in the summer months.
COFFEE MORNING SOCIALS
We hope that members will come to the social events and bring their friends. Local history scrapbooks have been maintained for over 50 years and these will be on display. The Scrapbooks make a fascinating record of events as seen at the time by local newspapers and periodicals and photographs.
The collection of books, papers, etc. on local history belonging to the Society are stored in the Museum and can be made available to members on request.
THE JOURNAL OF KENT HISTORY
This is published twice a year by The Kent History Federation, of which we are members. It contains a wide selection of articles and items of interest, as well as details of events and talks in Kent. The cost is £2 per issue. Orders can be placed with the Secretary
