A history group have moved home in hope of boosting dwindling numbers.

The Romford and District Historical Society will host its first meeting at myplace in Dagnam Park Drive, Harold Hill, on January 26.

After “much searching and deliberation,” the committee decided to leave the old venue at Trinity Methodist Church because of the lack of parking causing a decline in members.

Myplace has more parking spaces, including disabled bays, and there are more just a short walk away at Central Park Leisure Centre. Bus routes 174, 294 and 256 all serve the venue from Romford, Gidea Park, Harold Wood and Hornchurch.

The inaugural meeting will be free to visitors and feature a talk on Keepers, Cockneys and Kitchen Maids from Georgina Green.

Access to the room will be from 7.30pm with the meeting taking place from 8.00–9.30pm.

For future meetings, visitors will pay the normal £2.50. The annual membership costs £12.
