'Founded in 1846, The Sussex Archaeological Society is the oldest of its type in the country. Our charitable aim is to enable people to enjoy, learn about and have access to the heritage of Sussex ... We host a finds identification service and offer a variety of walks, talks and conferences on the archaeology and history of Sussex.'

'The Sussex Beekeepers’ Association caters for those who live in Brighton, East Grinstead and East Sussex who keep bees or who would like to start beekeeping. There are five local Divisions each of which have their own website ... The Divisions have meetings which help train people in beekeeping ... In spring and summer the meetings tend to be at apiaries, which gives members a chance to handle bees and beehives ... Beekeeping is essentially a practical craft so it is easier to learn by doing it.  You need the company of experienced friends, and the Divisions provide this.  You never stop learning about beekeeping.'

'The Sussex Family History Group was founded in 1972. It has about 3500 members in Sussex, the rest of the UK, and around the world. There are five meeting centres in the County ... If you live in Sussex you are likely to find one fairly near to you.'
