Get involved

If you have an interest in local history and would like to get involved with Spondon Historical Society or help us to add more content to this website (or both!), then we'd love to hear from you.

You can find out more about becoming a full member of the Society by clicking here. Alternatively, if you would like to get involved with the group in some other way, or perhaps offer some help specifically with our website, please click here to contact us

We're also always very interested to hear from anyone who feels they may have something to contribute to the Society's ever-growing archive of material and memories. So if you have an old photograph of the local area which you'd like to share with others or perhaps some old document or other item which you feel may be of interest, again, please do get in touch with us.
