Cringleford Historical Society (CHS) was founded in 1981 and exists to promote the study of the history, architecture and development of the village of Cringleford in Norfolk as well as exploring regional historical developments. It encourages and supports members of the Society in their researches and in publishing their findings where possible. The Society also records and collects photographs, drawings, maps and plans, together with writing related to the village.
We hold monthly meetings between September and April (excluding December and January) with a range of speakers, usually attracting between 60 and 70 people and we enjoy a chat over tea and coffee afterwards. Everyone is welcome to attend. Obviously we did not meet during the pandemic. Our full programme resumed in 2022 and 2023 will see some changes to be fully implemented in 2024. Our first meeting of 2023/2024 takes place on September 20th 2023 in the Church Hall with the AGM at 7.15 followed by the talk at 7.30 pm,
There will be a £5 per person membership fee to cover September, October and November followed by a further payment in February 2024 to cover the whole of the 2024 year. Visitors for specific talks will continue to pay £3 per talk. Payment for membership can be made either by cheque or online payment but cash payments are NOT accepted apart from visitor attendance.
We also keep a page active for reporting on activities by Society members.
