We have a website http://www.wellingtonhistory.org.uk and a quickly growing facebook page @wellingtonphs with regular posts especially featuring the village archive. Reports of past and upcoming meetings are regularly found in the Wellington Welcome and County Times section of the Hereford Times. Broad Sheep and local parish newsletters feature the society’s meetings.
Wellington Parish History Society is a friendly, thriving society with its 5 times per year meetings at the centre of its activity. In addition, there is a walk or outing organised by the committee. Wherever possible the speakers are chosen for topics which have direct relevance to the parish as well as county wide and national context. Members and visitors are encouraged to add their own memories or detail during talks, and to tarry awhile after the speaker over complementary refreshments and view artefacts and catch up with friends and neighbours.
