(POSTED 30 MARCH 2020)

It is with extreme regret that we have to inform you that in-line with current Government policy, ALL HHLH&MS MEETINGS ARE CANCELLED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE.

 

I have issued a challenge to all our Face Book Members.which I extend to ALL or members. With your extra time at home at present, why not undertake some historical reading or research. It desn't matter if it is local history, history of your family, or n event or period in history you fancy looking into. Then let us know via email to our secretary Roy Wood, with HISTORY CHALLENGE in the subject box. If time we may include some of your results in the Mwmbers' Newsletter. roy.wood3@ntlworld.com 

Naturally we continue to wish everyone all the very best during these difficult times, and we will keep you fully informed with all developments that have an effect on our Society.

Welcome to our updated website for The Hemel Hempstead Local History & Museum Society.  We are a friendly group of people who are all interested in the local history of the area and look forward to the day when Hemel can have its own local museum.
 
We welcome all ages from youngsters still at school to those at the other end of life’s scale.  All that is needed is an interest in our local history – our heritage.

Membership varies from those who have undertaken detailed research into various aspects of our local history, to  others who are simply interested in the past, and in particular in our own area.  Several of our members have published books on aspects of our local history, whereas others are content to read the fruits of their studies.

The society has one of the largest lending libraries of books covering all aspects of the history & archaeology of this part of Hertfordshire, and books are free on loan to members. 

We meet on the fourth Wednesday of each month, (excepting August & December) at the Carey Baptist Church Hall, Marlowes, Hemel Hempstead. 

Each month we welcome a speaker. Topics covered are varied and the talk is usually accompanied by slides or other illustrative material. Sometimes the speaker will bring along a small selection of documentation or ephemera to share with us.


As well as the monthly talks, the society arranges occasional outings to places of interest.
