FISHPONDS LOCAL HISTORY SOCIETY
Fishponds Local History Society was created in 1979 by John Bartlett and John Penny, both Fishponds born and bred, to promote the study of, and disseminate knowledge about, the local history of Fishponds and the Bristol area. They continue to run the society today, John Bartlett as Chairman and John Penny as Treasurer.
The society holds regular meetings on the first Friday of each month (except January and August) at the Beechwood Club/Resource Centre, Beechwood Road, Fishponds, Bristol, during which there is usually a presentation from a guest speaker, on some aspect of local history. Visits to local places of historic interest are also arranged. The society is affiliated to the Avon Local History Association.
