Founded 2000: 'It was named “Friern Barnet and District” as a reflection of its interest in not only the area covered by the former Friern Barnet Urban District Council but also the neighbouring areas of New Southgate, North Finchley and Whetstone. Our aims are to encourage the preservation of things of local interest, to study and record local history and to arrange lectures on topics of local and general historical interest ... We hold public meetings every month except July and August. These are free to members but there is a small charge ... for non-members'.

'The Society was originally formed to research, preserve and promote the history of the parish of Hornsey, and from 1983 included the area covered by the parliamentary constituency of Hornsey and Wood Green ... From September through to June we hold a series of talks on the second Wednesday of each month ... Talks cover a wide range of topics relating to the history of the local area and to London.'

'We are an enthusiastic group who want to show our photographs, develop our skills and share inspiration in a  friendly social environment. The Club meets most weeks of the year on Wednesday evenings at 7.30pm ... We welcome anybody with an interest in photography, regardless of their experience.'
