CORONAVIRUS It is with much regret that we have to say that all our talk evenings have been cancelled for the next two months. Our May Plant Sale has been cancelled and we will decide about summer walks shortly and the decision will be posted here. We the Society Committee are very sorry to have to take this action but a large number of our members are in the elderly group. We look forward to when it is deemed safe for us to resume. Our museum will also be closed now until September.
Newport Pagnell Historical Society was founded in 1984 by a small group interested in the buildings and people of the town and surrounding area and concerned in preserving the past for the future. By the 1990’s the thriving society, by its own fund raising efforts and with the generous help of the Harry Middleton Gift, was able to purchase and refurbish Chandos Hall and open it both as a Museum and the Society’s headquarters. The Society currently has around one hundred and seventy members who meet twice a month and is active in many aspects of the town and further afield including the preservation of historical buildings many of which have been sadly lost in the past. Our Membership Fees are :- to age 59 £11.00 per year and age 60 plus £9.00 per year. Following discussion at our AGM from January 2021 the Membership Fee will be £10.00 for all ages. On our ‘Talk Evenings’ the attendance fee of £1.00 for members and £3.00 for visitors will remain the same. On these evenings there is also a raffle and refreshments. There are regular Newsletters which are offered via e-mail, post or hand delivered to addresses in Newport Pagnell. If a posted version is requested we ask a fee of £4.00 for postage.
