Ayton Local History Society was formed in October 2000 with the aim to promote interest amongst the local community in local history and heritage. It has met regularly during the winter months every year since then, and organised summer outings to places of interest further afield.
Meetings are held in Ayton Community Hall starting at 7.30pm on the last Tuesday of each month from September to April (except December). A speaker is arranged for each meeting to come and give a short presentation on some topic, usually of local interest (see the list of previous meetings).
Meetings are very informal and tea and biscuits are served when the speaker finishes. This gives the chance for a blether with friends, meet new people or chat further to the speaker. As the evenings are lighter by April, that meeting is usually a local visit to somewhere of interest.
Library The society has collected a range of books on various topics and members are free to borrow these at the meetings.
The Society has its own informative website which can be viewed here.
We are always very pleased to welcome new members and anyone is welcome to attend individual meetings as a guest.
Annual membership is £6.
Guests may also attend meetings (£3 per evening).
