    Bearsted & District Local History Society

    We invite speakers to give presentations on varying topics, principally on historic themes where possible. Our membership is currently full but if you wish to apply to join please contact us via email and we will add your name to our waiting list which is reviewed on an annual basis. Visitors are welcome to attend our meetings but our members have priority for admittance. Visitors are therefore only admitted once all the members have taken their seats and on payment of an entrance fee.
