History Group

Parish Rooms

Pollington History Group collects and archives information on the village. Group meetings range from informal gatherings, where members and visitors share information, whether photographic, historic or personal memories, to presentations about our latest research.  Work continues on the village archive and the preparation of Powerpoint presentations.   

Old photos, documents and artefacts are always appreciated.


The group meets in the Parish Rooms, West End, at 2 o'clock on the first Thursday of the month (except August and December). Anyone with an interest in the history of our village is very welcome.

For more information, contact the group's Secretary, Margaret Tones, on 01405 785 206.
