Meetings

We usually hold our meetings in the Small Hall at All Saints Church Halls, Onslow Gardens, Sanderstead, CR2 9AB.

They are on the last Wednesday of each month starting at 2.00 pm, usually excluding August and December.

We make a small charge to cover the cost of hiring the hall and providing tea and biscuits after the meeting.

The meetings can be on any historical subject and not limited to Sanderstead. Most meetings are led by members of the group and are quite informal. This enables members to give a talk on a subject of their choice.

Until we are confident to resume meetings at All Saints following Covid-19 we are providing our meetings by Zoom at the same times. Write to us using our contact page to ask to be put on our mailing list so we can send you the Zoom link prior to each meeting.
