Egginton History Association

The Egginton History Association researches Egginton’s fascinating history, recording it for future generations and displaying the fruits of their labours for others to enjoy.

After many years of hard and productive effort the Chairman and Secretary have decided to take retirement and the Parish Council is now looking to recruit a new team to run the Association.

Meetings are held 4 to 6 times a year to share information and to direct activities.
Current projects include:

• Analysis of census data between 1841 and 1911 to which 1921 needs to be added
• Making a photographic record of all village dwellings, corresponding to the 2011 Census. This needs to be updated to cover all the new developments in the Village.
• Continue to archive and catalogue documents that have been donated in the past

The Egginton History Association Centre (situated in the Old Post Office, behind the Memorial Hall) is used for the display and storage of memorabilia. The centre is usually open on the afternoon of the third Wednesday in the month between 2 pm and 4 pm. However whilst the recruitment of a new team is ongoing the centre will be closed albeit on a temporary basis.

All are welcome to visit and look through the information held once the centre is reopened.

So when we are once open for business why not come along on a Wednesday afternoon and see for yourself?

Please share with us any photographs, memorabilia or artefacts either for copying or retention for display in the Heritage Centre. Come and show us what you have!

New members are most welcome and membership is free!

For further details please contact: Sir Henry Every, who has taken on the role of Chairman on a temporary basis, on email
