The Bletchingley Conservation and Historical Society holds regular meetings hosting speakers covering all aspects of local history, especially concerning Bletchingley village and the surrounding areas. We also view and comment from time to time on local planning applications affecting the village. Meetings are normally held in Bletchingley Village Hall in the High Street (adjacent to Lawrences the auctioneers - postcode RH1 4PA).
Our next meeting next will be at 8pm on Thursday, June 13th 2019 in the Village Hall. Our president Derek Moore, will talk about “Local Aircraft Crashes”. A pre-war civil airliner crash and the downing of a WWII military bomber will form the basis of the talk.
To find out more, you can come along to any meeting as a visitor for £2, but why not become a member for just £8? Subscriptions are for the season which runs from November 2018 to October 2019.To join the society via our web page, send us an email using the link below and it will be passed on to our membership secretary.

9/5/19: The Surrey in the Great War team would like to invite you to their project finale event, War and Peace in Surrey, 1914-1919, on Saturday 20 July at Dorking Halls (11am-4.30pm). A century on from Britain’s ‘Peace Day’, when the nation celebrated the official end of the war, join us to browse exhibitions, listen to talks, and experience the sights and sounds of wartime Surrey through film, our Learning to Fly sound installation, re-enactments and children’s activities.
9/04/19: Please ensure that you have paid your subscription for this year - most of you have by now! If you pay by standing order, please check that you have increased this to £8 per year rather than £5 which was the old rate.
28/04/18: We have been contacted by someone who attended the village primary school in the 1950s and remembers Mr Clegg as being the headmaster. If you have any memories of the school at that time and are happy for our correspondent to get in touch, please let us know using the email address and we will pass your details on.
