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.
Joining the Society costs as little as £5 per person per year. Our morning and evening talks are free to members and we welcome non-members for £1 each. Members also receive four colour newsletters per year. In normal times we organise an extensive range of guided walks which are usually 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.
Talks Programme, Autumn 2020
The Enfield Society has reluctantly concluded it cannot hold its Autumn talks at Jubilee Hall. As a result we will be holding some of the planned programme to members via Zoom. Members will receive the details of these meetings via our monthly news e-mails.
Walks Programme, Autumn 2020
There are still too many uncertainties to produce a Walks Programme for the period September to November. Most Society walks use public transport and there may still be some restrictions on the use of public transport during this period. We are monitoring the situation in consultation with other organisations and hope that it will be possible to resume walks during the Autumn. We had to postpone most of the walks in our Spring programme, but it may be possible to reinstate a few of these walks in a modified manner when circumstances allow. Depending on the government advice at the time, we may need to ask members to book a place on a walk in order to limit the group to a certain size.
We will keep members informed via our monthly news e-mails as the situation changes. If you are not receiving these and wish, please contact us.

Museum and Archive Service: what future?
Despite repeated requests by local organisations, Enfield Council are still unable to say what the plan is for the Museum and Archive Service currently housed on the 1st floor of the Dugdale Centre.
The Enfield Society has now sent a letter to the Leader asking to see the plans for this service. The letter has also been sent to all Councillors, the Chief Exec and the Director of Property.
The Enfield Society is calling on members and the public to write to LBE and add your voice to ours.
Jubilee Hall Evening Meetings Organiser
This position is still vacant and without a volunteer we will be unable to offer evening talks next year. This is not an onerous task and the present volunteer, Stephen Gilburt, would be pleased to share his list of the speakers he has used. Contact us for more information.
