Welcome to The Pulborough Society 

The Pulborough Society holds seven lively and entertaining meetings a year.

We produce an informative newsletter before each meeting, highlighting issues of concern to the Society and our members.

All our meetings are held in the village hall, and this allows our members to discuss any concerns they might have and how we as a society can help.

The guest speakers at our meetings (see News & Events) are always interesting and diverse;
if you are a non-member and would like to come along and see if the Society has anything to offer you, we charge just £2.


Next Meeting: 

Wednesday 8th June 2016 at 7.30pm
in The Rother Room, Pulborough Village Hall

Following the agenda (below) we will enjoy a talk on the following:

 “SELBOURNE AND HEADLY WORKHOUSE RIOTS OF 1830”

                               

Why were these two workhouses attacked? This talk by Mr John Owen-Smith
covers the dramatic events and their aftermath. A special hearing a few weeks
later was attended by The Duke of Wellington.
