Becoming a Member
Why become a member?
Joining the History Society enables you to support the work of the volunteers who maintain the Heritage Centre whilst discovering and recording Whimple history.
The society hosts a minimum of six talks each year by a variety of interesting speakers. All talks are free to members.
We also have an active social programme including the Volunteer’s Welcome Event, the Christmas Lunch, a bi-annual Auction and the famous Whimple Wassail.
A regular newsletter, as well as this website, keeps members up to date about events during the year.
A number of our members choose to go on to become volunteers and stewards at the Heritage Centre.
