Newington History Group

Newington History Group meets monthly in the Village Hall on the 4th Thursday (7pm-9pm).

Meetings include speakers, both local and of a wider network, plus time for news questions or discussion. Local stories are of a major interest and any help with research and collating information is always useful.

The aim of the group is to record and promote the history of Newington and its environs or related subjects, by research, study and publication.  Newington History Group has its own website
