Publications, meetings and events

Since 2007 we have hosted the popular Bridge Tea in November and since at least 1999 we have provided the usually oversubscribed Quiz Evening. Both are key fund raising events and are part of the social fabric in the town.

We produced and published the booklet on the Organs of the Parish Church researched and written by Linda Heath.

A History of the Parish Church is available price 3 plus UK postage from the editor.  This has many black and white illustrations and 20 pages of text.

We issue an annual newsletter. Our AGM takes place in May, at which we have a talk by a guest speaker.

In the last 15 years talks have been: the Shooting down in Surrey of a Halifax bomber by one of our own aircraft during WWII.  Our interest was that one of the crew, Teddy Arnold, was a  well known parishioner who is buried in our churchyard; the launch of the War Memorials Website Project; Hampton Cottage, the home of the Leatherhead Museum; our late Chairman Ron Presley OBE gave a talk on the History of Lawn Tennis and Wimbledon; our Treasurer Frank Haslam organised an evening of recollections of Old Leatherhead, with Brian Hennegan and Joe Parry; Michael Laikin of Alan's Antiques gave a talk on a A Day in the Life of An Antique Dealer; the Assistant Curate Rev Kuhan Satkunanayagam, spoke on Churches and Charities in Sri Lanka; Jay Bristow on the Leatherhead Youth Partnership. One year we had a wine tasting provided by Denbies. Dominic Gywnn, one of the restorers, gave an excellent talk on the Thomas Parker Organ project, which we partly funded. Goff Powell from the Leatherhead & District Local History Society spoke on Leatherhead's Clock Tower.
