Informal monthly meetings are held every second Wednesday, from 7.30 pm, at Ore Community Centre, Old London Road.

We have excellent guest speakers on a wide range of local history subjects and a well-stocked bookshop and reference of direct local interest.

There is a research room open for help and advice on Thursdays, 10am to noon and Saturdays 10a to 12.30pm.

We’d love to meet you and help with your family research. New members always welcome.
