The Society holds its meetings on the 2nd Tuesday of each month in the Wilmot Street Community Centre. Meetings start at 7.30pm. All our meetings are very well attended, and on occasions can be standing-room only - especially if the subject is particularly "local" in its nature, or if it is a subject that has mass appeal. We would recommend that you don't leave it to the last minute to arrive - the day is rapidly approaching that we will have to close the doors!

(To get to the Wilmot Street Community Centre, in the centre of Heanor, turn onto Wilmot Street at the side of the Market Place , directly opposite the Market Hotel; after passing the first junction - with Mundy Street - there is a car park on your right, and the Community Centre is adjacent to that. For those of you with 'Sat Nav', the postcode is DE75 7EF.)

You don't have to be a member of the Society to attend our meetings -  visitors are always welcome. Non-members are invited to contribute a donation to the Society at their discretion.
