The Society 'operates an active and varied programme. We provide regular talks and day-schools on a wide variety of topics and covering every period of history, from Anglo Saxon and Roman times to Victorian and Twentieth Century developments'.

Founded 1990, merging to neighbouring societies: 'We meet once per month from September to June, usually on the second Friday ... Most meetings feature a talk by a guest speaker, sometimes a professional astronomer and sometimes a fellow amateur. These talks are always on a fairly non-technical level; no prior knowledge of astronomy is necessary to join the Society, and new members, novices included, are always more than welcome. Though many of our members are casual or "armchair" astronomers, we also have several dedicated and expert observers among our ranks'.

'The home of Beekeeping in the old County of Cleveland ... Spring, Autumn, and Winter meetings (January to April, and then September to December) are held at 7.15 pm on the 3rd Monday of the month. There will normally be an improvers teaching session starting at 6.30pm before the main meeting.'

'We believe that the industrial history of the north east and Yorkshire is important and we work for its preservation. Our members make records of industrial sites and equipment, carry out historical research and work to help the preservation of business records and physical relics themselves. The Society organises a programme of lectures and site visits. It publishes two or three newsletters a year, containing short contributions and current news.'

Membership is open to anyone interested in local history.
