Meetings are held in the John Corbett Room, Droitwich Community Hall, Heritage Way, Droitwich Spa, starting at 7:30pm.
Our aims are:
- To provide a focus for interest in the town's past.
- To educate individuals and groups about local remains of human activity with a view to conservation.
- To encourage the current level of knowledge through research into local history and fieldwork.
Monthly lecture meetings, occasional visits and tours, guided town walks, monitoring development projects and, where appropriate, comment on those applications which affect local heritage. We publish a twice-yearly newsletter.
