Historical Research Group of Sittingbourne
The Historical Research Group of Sittingbourne (HRGS) is a non-profit-making organisation dedicated to understanding our history and heritage and helping others to do the same. Sittingbourne is located in Kent.
Much of our history has been lost or forgotten over the years. We cannot change the past but we can learn from it. The HRGS is working hard to research, record and publish as much of our heritage as possible. To this end our group began, recruiting members and sponsors from the local, and not so local, community. We are a proactive and interactive group in which new members are warmly welcomed and invited to take part in our many activities at whatever level they wish.
We encourage questions and help find answers. We believe in involving the whole family and run special historical events such as ‘Treasure Hunts’ to include members of all ages. We hold regular monthly meetings at various sites and museums, run training courses for those who would like to learn how to research for themselves, offer supported projects for members to work on in a small team and a friendly environment to do it all in.
The Historical Research Group of Sittingbourne contributed diaries and photo diaries and also encouraged their members to answer the Historical 1939 Questionnaire.
