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.
Walk with The Enfield Society
Medical studies and academic research into health and well-being continues to tell us that regular walking is good for both our physical and mental health. Walking with a group provides the opportunity to explore new areas that you may not otherwise visit and it provides social opportunities. Our walks range from discovery walks in parts of central London to countryside walks. All walks are arranged using public transport. More details of our walks can be found here.
Next litter-pick: Saturday 30th November, 10am
The Cleaner Neighbourhoods Group will be meeting at the former Boundary House pub in Ponder’s End High Street (EN3 4EJ) to clean the Boundary Stream footpath. Equipment provided and all members welcome.
Jubilee Hall Evening Meetings Organiser
Many of you will know Stephen Gilburt has organised our Monday evening meetings for some time. Sadly Stephen feels unable to continue after the end of 2020. Consequently, the Enfield Society is looking for someone to book speakers, lay out the hall and Chair the evening meetings held at 7.30pm for 8pm in Jubilee Hall on the third Mondays of January to November (except June, July and August), from the beginning of 2021. The programme for 2020 has already been arranged.
Please contact Stephen (020 8363 0031) if you would like more information on what is involved or if you would be willing to undertake this task.
