About us

Ward End and Hodge Hill Local History Society was formed in 2000 and meets in Ward End Fire Station from 7pm to 9pm, on the second Monday of each month.  See our programme. The Society currently has about 20 members.

External speakers present a range of topics of historical interest. On some evenings we present our own findings or bring items of interest. The Society organises a Summer outing and Christmas meal at local venues.
