our objectives

  • to collect and store safely all of the research which has already been done, and everything which we hope will be done in the future
  • to make this material available to everyone who is studying either this area or their family who once lived in this area
  • to pass this knowledge on to everyone who lives in this village
  • to collect and store documents and artefacts relating to Churt
  • to encourage an interest in local history
  • to foster a community spirit.

Are you interested in the history of your house, local residents, our school, our church, our shops, our public houses, our habitat, transport in our area, our sports and other clubs? If so, why not join Churt Heritage?

We cover the whole of Churt Parish. Whatever your interest, there is a place for you. You may wish just to participate in our events. You may wish to join in our research.

We are not a ‘society’.  Everyone who is interested is automatically Churt Heritage.  There is no annual subscription.  This does mean, of course, that we have no source of income other than that we raise by the events we hold.  Donations to help with our work are very gratefully accepted.

We have established an archive and study room in the Pavilion on the recreation ground.  We hope that, in the future, and providing that there is a demand, that the room will be open for research and study.  Many of the documents and photographs are stored on Google Drive and can be accessed by all.
