IMPORTANT MESSAGE, PLEASE READ.

(POSTED 19 MAY 2022)

 

        My sincere apologies to everyone, but as previously reported,the very untimely death of Lynda Evans last year has left me with a major problem. That is I no longer have anyone to help with either this site or indeed the Society's  Facebook page. It was a great relief to me when Lynda said that not only would she help with the Facebook page, but she would also take over the website completely this year, and I knew I could rely on her as she had been helping catalogue my local history information for some time.

     My various health problems mean that at least a couple of hours each day are taken up with dressings and obligatory rest if I am to keep on top of things and above all stay out of hospital. Add to that my personal local history work and I simply do not have the time to do everything I should do, whether for HALS, myself or the HHLH&MS.

     Somehow I missed the email from our Hon Secretary listing the meetings this year, but late is better than never and there are still 2 meetings on the list (See details at the bottom of this message.) should you be interested in attending.(At the Carey Baptist Church Hall, Marlowes. in Hemel.)

     I am also in need of someone to volunteer to take over either this site, or the website, or indeed both. If you are willing to take on either of these tasks, or you wish to find out more, then please email our secretary Roy at roy.wood3@ntlworld.com with HHLH&MS in the subject box.

      THANK YOU, Barbara Chapman

HEMEL HEMPSTEAD HISTORY & MUSEUM 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.
