The Hartfield History Group was formed in 1972 to discover and record the history of the small Parish of Hartfield and the Surrounding District that is part of the Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) of East Sussex.
Meetings are held monthly in the Village Hall on the fourth Wednesday of each month (except December when there is no meeting) and from September 2014 at the NEW TIME of 8:15 pm. Local walks or activities are arranged for the summer months (See Current Programme.)
Annual membership starts at the September meeting with the 2015/16 subscription set at £10.00 per annum.
Non members are welcome to each meeting for which the charge is £2.50 from September 2015.
Walks and visits may be separately charged but will be advised in advance.
Initially we had a one-page website but as from November 2014 the new website is being developed ‘live’. This means that information will be added at any time and thus we would suggest you re-visit and should you have any suggestions do please make contact.
The aim is to develop the website to provide not only information on the current programme and reports on the activities carried out but also a history resource for the local parish and residents.
A great deal of work has been carried out over many years by our local historian Mike Parcell and others and we are sure that the world-wide community that is now available through the ‘connected world’ of the internet will also be fascinated by the history of this special – and ancient – parish.
This is of course a substantial task so please be aware that there may well be big gaps in the information as it is being added live but at least we retain a point of contact for anyone searching on-line.
If you wish to be added to an email circulation list which currently provides details and reminders of meetings and items of interest, please email: firstname.lastname@example.org OR go to the ‘Contacts‘ page and click on the button.
