The Egham-by-Runnymede Historical Society was founded in 1967 to further an interest in local history and archaeology. We hold talks mainly on local subjects but sometimes on a wider or more general theme. These, normally 10 each year, are free to members with non-members paying a small sum, currently £2. From 31st March 2022 our annual subscriptions are £15 unless you are a senior (£12.50) or junior (£6) and this includes  our newsletters (not the postage which is £6.50).

If you haven’t already renewed your membership, please consider forwarding your subscription to our Membership Secretary and continue to support your local Historical Society. 

EbRHS Mem Leaflet 2022

Throughout all the lockdown restrictions, we have continued to produce a monthly newsletter, usually in colour, in order to maintain contact with members.  This will continue in colour for the foreseeable future.

We are now serving refreshments after meetings and holding the monthly raffle   

We look forward to welcoming you to our future meetings.

Yours sincerely, Richard Williams on behalf of the EbRHS Committee
