The Hambledon Heritage Society was established to ensure OUR VILLAGE heritage is understood, documented and appreciated by current and future generations.
Many village residents have supported the aims of the Society, with important contributions such as the compilation of the village scrapbook, publication of booklets and articles plus of course the popular speaker’s presentations at the Annual General Meeting, with topics ranging from dendrochronology, WWll memories through to famous residents and associated village houses.
The Society continues with its programme of research activities but is now wishing to encourage, new, interested Researchers to add to this programme, by offering two, Heritage Research Bursaries of £100.00 each for 2017-2018.
These Bursaries are designed primarily to attract young Researchers, who are in full or part time education, are normally Hambledon residents or progeny of current residents and are interested in conducting village heritage research, selecting a topic of their choice. However, research has no age limitations.
Examples of such topics could be; glass manufacturing, the workhouse, why a two-centred village?, the lime kiln and its uses etc. but new and innovative topics would be welcome.
To apply for one of the research Bursaries or just to make an enquiry, please write to or call Stephen Maycock, a member of the Hambledon Heritage Society committee who will be pleased to discuss the Bursary programme in more detail.
