Friern Barnet & District Local History Society

Categories: Community / Clubs, History

From their website: "Our founder, John Donovan, lived in Friern Barnet between 1966 and 1995. He became concerned that nothing was being done to record and preserve the history of the area and before long there would be nobody left who remembered it. He decided to start a local history society and in late 1999 he gathered together a few like-minded people and the Society was formed. We had our first public meeting in September 2000, at the former Friern Barnet Town Hall, and by the end of that year we had a membership of over 100."
