About Us


Abergavenny Local History Society has about 220 members (2021).


Our President is Ken Key, a long-standing member and multi-tasker who produced the newsletter for many years.

It is run by a small committee – more people are always needed and they do not need to be on the committee. 

There are lots of things to do!

You could help with Churchwatch a couple of times a year, help in the garden, supply books and leaflets to shops, operate the audiovisual equipment at talks, join the Research Group, look after the plaques, help at talks or visits... the list goes on and on. Look at the menu at the side for ideas, or contact us.


Current members of the committee are:

Gill Wakley                        Chairperson 

Linda Smith                       Secretary
