The Winsford History Society was first established in November 1966. The idea was to form a society which would collect, collate and preserve historical information about Winsford, Cheshire, and the surrounding areas. The Society also wished to encourage the study of history as a whole. In the early years it was a thriving local Society which published many newsletters, most of which can be seen in Winsford Library. Annual membership subscriptions in 1966 were ten shillings (£0.50) for adults and five shillings (£0.25) for juniors.
An annual membership subscription is charged, which entitles members to attend the Society’s talks and other events. Non-members can also attend, but will be charged as visitors.
- Individual annual membership £10
- Family annual membership £15
Society talks and meetings are usually held at Hazlemere, Hambleton Way, Winsford CW7 1QQ on the first Monday of the month, unless it happens to be a Bank Holiday. This is a fully accessible venue. We meet at 7.30pm and aim to finish by 9.00pm.
At most of our meetings there is a guest speaker, but we also hold “At Home” sessions when we as members discuss Winsford past and present. At present there are eight meetings scheduled in our yearly programme, which can be see on the Events page.
