Future events

The programme to May is on our events page.

We regret that due to a declining number of members, which has severely reduced our income, and the rising costs of running the society's events, the committee has decided to close the society in its current form at the AGM in June 2016.

The Haverhill branch of Suffolk FHS has kindly invited our members to attend their meetings, and details of their programme can be found via this link.

Members wil lalso be welcome to attend the events of Cambridgeshire FHS.
