Sibfords Society

The Sibfords Society began in 1993 and meetings are held nine times each year. These include external visits during the summer, and talks of historical interest which are held in the Village Hall. We concentrate mainly on the local area but are occasionally happy to invite speakers from further afield. We have an archive room where we preserve evidence for future generations.

Membership is £12 per annum and free to school children. Free tea, coffee and biscuits are served at all the meetings.

For further information, please contact Diana on 780 506 or Clive on 780 475.

Meetings are at 8pm unless stated otherwise in the programme below. Visitors are always welcome at a cost of £2.50 if they don't join the Society.
