A-Z LECTURES and CATEGORIES

Local Society: Newton Abbot

'The Chudleigh History Group's purpose may be summed up as "Preserving Our Parish History". We take a very active interest in any matters relating to the history, preservation or investigation of the fabric of the community, and we constantly monitor any proposed changes or rearrangements affecting the town ... The History Group meets once a month (apart from January and normally on the first Friday) ... Each meeting consists of an illustrated talk or presentation given by a member or guest speaker on some aspect of the history of Chudleigh, the local area or other part of Devon and occationally beyond.'

'If you are interested in becoming a Beekeeper or just interested in beekeeping generally, join a Local Branch of the Association ... DBKA is organised into 11 Branches ... Members may attend meetings of any Branch, but it is advisable (and courteous) to contact the Branch Secretary first.'

'The Society’s objects are to promote the study of genealogy and history, especially of Devon families and places, to educate the public therein through advice and instruction, and, for the public benefit, to encourage the preservation and transcription of relevant documents and records, especially for the county of Devon. The Devon Family History Society, formed in 1976, is one of the largest FHS in the UK.'

'Dedicated to the study and exchange of information and ideas on all matters concerning the county of Devon – in particular, the cultural identity of the county and its distinctiveness – through research, recording and publication ... The Association has six Branches that cover most of the county and offer a broad range of topics tailored to the diverse interests of their members. Each Branch has its own committee which arranges a broad-based, annual programme of Devon-related talks, excursions and social gatherings.'
