What we do:

From September to June we hold a wide-ranging programme of monthly lectures.
We record and publish memories of villagers of Gamlingay in 20th century.
We publish articles about places, events and people in Gamlingay and surrounding district.
Every year we hold an exhibition of archive material at the Gamlingay Show.
We have collected a large archive of old photographs of the village and people over the last 100+ years and these are displayed on our sister website: www.gamlingayphotos.co.uk
