Our 2017 Annual general meeting and supper was held at the Melksham Assembly Hall on Thursday 16th November. After the formal business of the association, we were entertained by Pete Butler, who gave us a very entertaining hour of singing and playing keyboard and various other instruments, with songs from his wide spectrum from 1950’s to present day songs.

Our next meeting will be in the new year, on Thursday Jan 18th when we will have a “Slides evening”, Tony Fivash will present a slide show of local interest.

Looking forward to February, Chris and Judy Rouse will give a slide show and talk entitled “Railway Navvies”

Welcome to the web site of the Melksham and District Historical Association 
The Melksham and District Historical Association was formed in 1962 to preserve and record for posterity the events and buildings in the town of Melksham and the surrounding area. 

From September to April the association arranges meetings in the Assembly Hall with guest speakers and slide shows of local interest (click here for details). May, June and July are reserved for visits to local places of interest and our annual outing, which takes place in July. 

The web site provides information about the association and its meetings, events and outings.
