Our Society was founded in 1996 and is run by a small group of people from the village. We share a passionate interest in our community, its people and how it has come to be the way it is. We also understand the importance of recording and maintaining stories, records and artefacts from the village and surrounding areas for the benefit of future generations.

We hold a regular calendar of well-attended talks and lectures in Sarratt Village Hall - meetings take place on Tuesdays at 7:30 for 8pm, with members attending free. Our Annual General Meeting takes place in January and we publish a programme of events every Spring.

We also arrange some ‘one-off’ walks of historical interest and special exhibitions linked to specific historical anniversaries and commemorations.

A programme of events is published each Spring and sent to members. Membership is open to all
- see our Membership Page for more details.

As we research the history of local places and people, we encourage everyone to share their local knowledge with us.
