The Wickham History Society is an active and friendly non-profit making civic amenity founded in January 1960 that exists to:
Gather information about the past history of Wickham and help make it available to all who are interested,
Promote the preservation of old buildings, monuments, records, maps and traditions of Wickham,
Foster interest in Wickham’s history and historical research more widely through this website and publications, arranging lectures, visits and exhibitions.
In the autumn and winter months we hold meetings in the Wickham Community Centre at 7.30 pm on the first Tuesday of the month, October to December and February to May at 7.30 pm at the Wickham Community Centre, with a variety of guest speakers who cover cover both local history and wider history subjects. We also organised visits to places of interest in the Summer
The Wickham History Society also conducts Wickham Village history walks on request from interested organisations, and can provide speakers for your organisation’s meetings.
There is a small annual charge for Membership, (currently £6), and visits may attract a small charge on a case by case basis. Similarly, a small charge is made for village history walks. Charges are made in advance.
The Wickham History Society is continually seeking information about people, buildings and events connected to Wickham Village and Wickham Parish, and welcomes suggested contributions to our web site. Submitted documents should be in Microsoft Word format and images in .jpg format.
The Society has very limited storage capacity for hard copy documents and prefer documents to be submitted in electronic format. However, if you have an important original document that you would like to donate to the Society, we would try to accommodate it. Alternatively, you could approach Hampshire Records Office and they may archive the document for you, but we would still be great-full to receive an electronic copy or transcription.
