'Formed in 2000 by a small group of villagers anxious to see the heritage of the area preserved for ever. Our mandate has not wavered - to study record and stimulate interest in the heritage of our two villages and their surrounding areas. Our membership fluctuates between 40 to 50 members. The Society organises and manages an annual programme of twelve open meetings in which it invites knowledgeable speakers to talk on a wide variety of subjects of local, national and international interest.'
