We are a small and growing enthusiastic group. We have two activities within the overall society:
- The Local History group holds meetings every other month when a guest speaker will entertain and enlighten us with a short talk on one of his or her specialist subjects.
- The second activity is a self-help Family Research group that meets every month.
In addition, we try to organise at least one visit to a place of interest during the better weather. Every year we find somewhere different to enjoy the surroundings and a social day out.
Our members come mainly from the Wheatleys and from the neighbouring towns and villages of North Nottinghamshire.
Details of our meetings are shown on the Future Events page,
We have also published 2 books about the joint villages of North & South Wheatley – Photographic Memories and The History and Stories of North and South Wheatley. Please see the Book Sales page for more details.
