The Enfield Society promotes the conservation and enhancement of the civic and natural environments of the London Borough of Enfield and its immediate surrounding area, for the public benefit. We were established in 1936.
Our morning and evening talks are free to members. We welcome non-members for £1 each, but joining the Society costs as little as £5 per person per year. Members also receive four colour newsletters per year. We organise an extensive range of guided walks which are accessible using public transport. Again, these are free to members, but we welcome non-members who wish to come and try before deciding to join. And by joining the Society you help support our valuable work within the borough.
World War 2 Conference with the Enfield Museum
2019 is the 80th anniversary of the start of the Second World War and the Museum of Enfield has put on an exhibition to show some aspects of the Borough during this period. In addition we are running a number of special events related to the exhibition.
In partnership with the Enfield Society we would like to invite you to our World War Two Day Conference, Saturday 14th September in the Dugdale Centre.
Volunteer needed for Press & Publicity Group
The Press & Publicity Group is involved in providing many of the benefits that members enjoy. These include production of the quarterly newsletter, press and media liaison, management of society publications and sales, organising attendance at shows and exhibitions, Heritage Walks, the cultural programme of evening and daytime talks, visits, coach outings, membership administration and recruitment and other projects.
After more than ten years leading the Group, Bob Fowler will be standing down this coming Autumn. The Society is, therefore, now looking for a volunteer from our membership to consider taking on this role. Could you be that person?
If you are interested in helping to shape the future of TES publicity activities please contact Bob by e-mail or phone to arrange a chat:

Mayor visits Enfield Society at “Jubilations”
We were delighted to receive the Mayor of Enfield, Councillor Kate Analoue, at our gazebo stand on July 7th in Jubilee Park. The Mayor purchased one of our books and talked to our volunteers on the stand. The event celebrated the 80th anniversary of the Park. The Enfield Society donated an oak tree to the Park, which was planted by the Mayor. Full details are included in our Autumn newsletter.
