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.  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.

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 and 2nd floors of the Dugdale Centre.

The Enfield Society has now sent a letter to the Leader asking to see the plans for this service.

Charity School, Edmonton

Take the virtual tour

As previously reported, there is growing optimism that this important building will be restored and returned to Community Use.

The London Historic Buildings Trust, who are leading in the restoration project, have created a fantastic 360° virtual tour of the building and the surrounding area.

Walk round the building and see it from every angle—you can even make measurements!

Society grants more money to the restoration effort

Trustees of The Enfield Society have agreed to grant further money towards the project by paying for Trustees’ Liability Insurance, seen as an essential step towards establishing a functioning Board of Trustees for the building, as well as Buildings Insurance.

Jubilee Hall Evening Meetings Organiser

We are still in need of finding someone to book speakers for the evening talks at Jubilee Hall from January 2021 onwards. We have been appealing for a volunteer to come forward for some time and due to the lead-time that booking speakers requires, this is now getting to be a more urgent problem. If we are unable to find a volunteer soon, our evening programme may be impacted next year.

If you would like more information about what is required, do please consider getting in touch. You can e-mail us at info@enfieldsociety.org.uk
