The aim of the Society is the preservation and study of all matters relating to the history and development of Stoke Poges; to collate and preserve archive material and artefacts, and to make it available for members and other interested parties.
The Society holds about six events a year, including talks, visits, members’ evenings, and it is most keen to encourage members to research their own family, or road, or any other aspect of the Village that interests them, and share their findings with other members of the Society. (Click here for programme.) It will make available archive material to members. It also helps people around the world searching for family connections in the Village.
Our next event:
Maintenance Day around Gray's Monument, Church Lane
Sunday 4 November 2018, between 10am - 3pm
Please come along at anytime during this period and stay for as long as you like to help maintain the area around Gray's Monument and adjoining Gray's Field which is owned by the National Trust.
A National Trust Ranger will be leading the activity and supplying the majority of the tools. If anyone wishes to bring their own tools then that's fine with the Ranger. Tasks will include pulling the brambles, cutting some growth from trees and litter pick
The Stoke Poges Society is supporting this event. Soft drinks and snacks available. Members of the Society will be on site.
