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!!!-COVID-19

We would like to announce that all meetings have been cancelled for the immediate future. We had originally planned to re-open with the AGM in June or July but this is now not possible. The revised plan is to begin again in August with the Tuesday meeting and the AGM but again, this will be subject to how the crisis is at that time. We apologise for any inconvenience but at the end of the day the health and well-being of our members is of paramount importance.

Please visit the website for further updates or email bernardj48@gmail.com or telephone 0121-422-1792 if you need to speak to anyone.

Thank you and keep safe.

Bernard J Taylor - Chairman
