Horley Local History Society was formed in 1952. Our aim is to encourage an active interest in the historical aspect of our local heritage.
We encourage research and have published books and history notes for Horley Library and we hold monthly talks for our members and any guests.
Our members staff a desk at our local library twice a week to help the general public with any inquiries relating to local and family history.
We are not, and never will be, a money making organisation. Our present membership fees are just £7 a year.
We have accumulated a vast amount of historic material in the form of documents, maps, photographs and books and we need to raise the funds to construct a secure, fireproof and dry building to store these items to ensure their long term safety.
After many years of searching we have finally been offerred a long term location for such a building and need to raise the construction costs of £20,000.
