Working to support our community

Charlton Kings Local and Family History Society

The Society exists to encourage and support research into the history of the village and people of Charlton Kings. Talks by local historians are held monthly between March and November with a break in July for the Summer.

Membership of the Society is £10.00 per year (January to December) and the monthly talks are included in the price of the membership. Non members pay £2.00 to come to the monthly talks.

We are grateful for our members because their membership fees enable us to pay for the hire of the hall and the expenses of the visiting historians.

Find us on Facebook

We have an active and friendly Facebook page where people ask questions, post photographs and generally get involved in discussions around local history. You can click on the Facebook logo to link directly to our group or click the link here.

We love to welcome new people and you don't have to pay the membership fee to be part of the online community.

Monthly Newsletters

Newsletters are emailed out monthly and members of the group are invited to share memories or articles of interest which can then be included by the editors.
