Bleasby Local History Society

Due to the C-19 outbreak, all meetings are cancelled until further notice

Bleasby Local History Society was formed over thirty years ago to pursue research into the history of Bleasby, especially regarding the families who have lived here. We have undertaken recording days from time to time, when photos are taken to show the village at that time. This, along with old photos, helps us mount displays and exhibitions in the village.

Although research still goes on, the activity now most enjoyed by the majority of members is the annual programme of lectures and visits and the annual social meeting in January.

We meet monthly on the last Tuesday of the month in the village hall at 7.30pm and all are most welcome to attend our meetings. Non-members are welcome to attend talks. There will be a small charge for non-members.

We also have a number of publications on aspects of Bleasby’s history which members have written and these are available from officers of the Society.

Other activities that the Society engages in are occasional events such as the commemoration of the 1604 Bleasby plague, the centenary of the death of William Booth, former resident of Bleasby, and the commemorations of the Great War.

The President (and currently Acting Chair) is Barbara Cast (Tel 830284), the Secretary is Jenny Sterland and the Treasurer is Trevor Lewis (Tel 830454) - we have a small committee which ensures the activities and business of the society are well organised.
