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.
Our next meeting next will be on Thursday 12th July at 8pm in the Village Hall when our very own Richard Fowler will be speaking to us about 'Victorian Bletchingley - Minute by Minute'. The talk is based upon the Vestry Minute Books, which recorded the discussions and decisions of the committee (The Vestry) responsible for the running of the civil parish as well as the church, before the days of local government by district and county councils.
We will hopefully gain some interesting glimpses into the life of the village in the 19th century.

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.
