Swalcliffe Society

CONTACT: O1295 788278

Committee members: Jeff Demmar, Cathy Stoertz & Colin Hill.

The Society’s aims include increasing the awareness of the village’s history, by preserving and cataloging the past and recording the present for future generations.
Currently only a small group of committee members, we are always looking to expand and invite anyone who is interested in helping us research and preserve our archives to get in touch.
