Local History Group
Are you interested in finding out more about Wimbledon in general, or more specifically your particular ward, street or home? If so, the museum Local History Group may be for you. They meet every first Friday of the month at 8.15pm-10.00pm (except August) in the museum, and everybody is very welcome.
Originally set up in 1971 to locate and list historical records of Wimbledon and encourage new research, the Group has just celebrated its 40th anniversary. It will come as little surprise that the notes and minutes amassed since this time are an absolute gold mine of unpublished local information and data. It is intended to make this invaluable body of knowledge more accessible in the future.
