Local History

LOCAL HISTORY

Shoreham Community Centre 1st Monday of the Month 14.00-16.00

You might be a long-standing resident with memories of your own or a relative newcomer wishing to learn about the area but together we will explore not only Shoreham and Southwick but also Worthing, Brighton, Hove and Portslade too. There will also be times when we will “travel” throughout Sussex as a whole.

Any member wishing to undertake a presentation of their own will be fully supported and all members will be encouraged to undertake a little research of their own - perhaps a person, a place, a building, an event, an activity or a period in time.
Our calendar until the end of the “official” year is as follows:

February 3rd 2020
