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

The revised plan was to begin again in August with the Tuesday meeting and the AGM but again, this has changed and the society's activities i.e. Exercise on Tuesdays, Line dancing on Fridays will now begin in SEPTEMBER. The first monthly meeting will be on Tuesday 8th September which will include the AGM. Unfortunately, due to social distancing and the government guidelines for church meetings the number of seats available will be reduced to either 40 or 60 depending on the whether it should be 2 metres or 1 metre plus. We are asking for members only please and we are also asking that you telephone 0121-422-1792 in the week or so prior to the meeting to reserve your seat. Sanitizers will be available on entry and we are asking that you bring the correct money (£1.50) and place it in the tin on arrival, no change will be given on the evening and there will also be no refreshments served for the first month or so. We would also advise you that a mask should be worn, although this is not compulsory. 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
