Welcome to Quinton Local History Society. We are a large and successful society, now having nearly 250 members, and we run a regular programme of events. Please click on one of the scrolls on the left for more information.


STOP PRESS!!!-Coronavirus Scare
The committee is very concerned about the above and are very aware that our monthly meetings usually have between 75 and 100 in attendance with everyone sitting in close proximity to each other. The committee has given the situation some considerable thought and have decided that the members health is the most important factor. The decision is to cancel the monthly meetings for April and May and return to normal, hopefully, in June for the society's AGM. The decision has not been taken lightly. It will mean that the AGM won't be all ticket but it will begin as usual at 7.45 followed by a buffet and a guest speaker. We would also request that at the end of May you ring 0121-422-1792 or check the website www.qlhs.org.uk to make sure that the meeting in June is going ahead. Bernard J Taylor - Chairman
