The East Bridgford Local History Group  was formally constituted in February 2000. Since then it has produced two books and a village walk guide leaflet. In addition it has initiated/participated in a number of projects some of which are still ongoing. All enthusiastic volunteers are encouraged to join any of its projects!

It has eight meetings a year (including an AGM) from October to May. The majority of its meetings are held in East Bridgford Methodist Church on the first Tuesday in the month at 7:30pm.

There is no formal membership. Anyone with an interest in history is welcome to attend at a cost of £3 per meeting (inclusive of free coffee/tea)
