Hastings and Rother Family History Society

Informal monthly meetings are held every second Wednesday, 7.30pm, at Ore Community Centre, Ore Village, Old London Road.

We have excellent guest speakers on a wide range of local history subjects, a well-stocked bookshop and reference of direct local interest.

There is a research room open for help and advice Thursdays 10am to noon and Saturdays 10am to 12.30pm.

We’d love to meet you and help with your family research. New members always welcome.

Contact the secretary, Linda Smith on 01424 437493. Visit the research room. Introduce yourself at one of our meetings. Visit our website, www.hrfhs.org.uk. Find us on Facebook: Hastings & Rother Family History Society.

Our next meeting is on Wednesday (February 11), 7.30pm at Ore Centre with David Maynard’s Klondike Kapers, an exciting tale of Fred Selden’s gold-rush adventures in northern Canada at the end of the 19th century.
