This vibrant Club meets at 7.30pm in the Vic Day Hall of the Shrivenham Memorial Hall on the first Tuesday of the month (except August, when we have our annual dinner at a local hostelry). The annual fee is £10 per person, or if you come as a visitor, it is £3 per meeting.
The talks cover a wide range of topics and not all on gardening. We also have a fish and chip supper with quizzes, a plant sale, an outing to a horticultural show and a four-day holiday.
We represent the history of Shrivenham and the surrounding districts. We have our Heritage Centre located in the south end of the Memorial Hall, where we have a growing collection of documents, photographs, maps and artefacts. Our documents include records from the Parish Council, Schools, Women’s Institute, Brownies, Shrivenham United Charities, Dils & Swartz Collection, British Legion etc. The Centre is open on Tuesday mornings 10 - 12 and Thursday evenings 5.30 - 7.30pm.
Visitors may consult our documents and books, and may also search on our computers online for documents relating to their family history.
We also have a Website that includes an online catalogue at www.shrivenhamheritagesociety.co.uk where we list all of our documents and hundreds of photographs. We hold meetings every quarter in the Memorial Hall, when we present local history, or history that has some connection with our area.
