The Marldon Local History Group formally came into being on 11th September 2001, and has a formal Constitution, a Committee and the usual Officers. The Group has found that there is a great interest in the Parish about the history of the Parish, especially in the comparatively recent social history with which the older members of the community can relate and identify. This is reflected in the continuing success of and attendances at the Group’s quarterly Open Meetings, which are open to Members and non-Members, and at which the Group displays any newly acquired material as well as existing appropriate material.
Our Open Meetings have a Guest Speaker or theme of local or seasonal interest, and have become an incentive for both Members and non-Members to bring us their own personal contribution to our ever increasing Archive.
In addition to its own Archive of material, the Group has copies of the Parish Church records of births, marriages and deaths dating back to 1598, which are also available at the County Records Office in Exeter.
Quarterly Open Meetings on 2nd Friday of March, June, September and December. 7.30pm
These Meetings are open to Members and non-Members
