This recently formed Society meets once a month in Stock Village Hall. The subject alternates between local history and family history, though inevitably these frequently overlap.
Our aim is to promote interest in the local history of Stock and Buttsbury Parishes; to provide facilities for recording and storing information and artefacts for present and future residents; and to provide a forum for assisting members in tracing their family history.
We have an annual subscription of £10 and now have 100 paid-up members. We charge £1 for members and £3 for visitors when attending a meeting. This includes tea/coffee and biscuits.
Visitors and new members are welcome.
Between Jenny and John Westwood, most of the local War Memorials are being researched If you have anything to help with this, please Heritage Society contacts
