Park Street and Frogmore Society
The PSFS was formed in January 1995 to promote interest in local history and nature including conservation.
The Society organises six open meetings a year for members and the general public. Each of which includes a presentation from an invited speaker on a topic of historical or nature interest. The Meetings are held on the third Tuesday of the month in January, March, May, July, September and November, 8.15pm at the Village Hall and cost just £1 to attend for members and £2 for non members.
Members are kept informed by regular Newsletters and Journals.
The society archive includes historical documents, images, maps, and records together with recorded memories of residents past and present. Help can be given to those researching local and family history and we encourage the sharing of memories and items of local interest.

Future Meetings for 2017
Tuesday 19th September. Going Wild in the Hebrides by Phil & Ann Farrer.
Ann and Phil have travelled to many parts of the world in pursuit of their joint interest in birds and they present a series of talks based upon these journeys. Each talk is well illustrated using their own photographs and has birds as the main theme but also includes aspects of environment, animals and plants.
Ann was Group Leader of the Hemel Hempstead RSPB Members’ Group for 12 years and Phil is a Chartered Biologist and keen photographer. Both have been very involved with the Red Kite release project in the Chilterns.
This talk is a compilation of many visits made at different times of the year. It looks at the birds and other wildlife on both the Inner and the Outer Hebrides.
This talk is a little longer than normal so there will be a short break in the middle for refreshments. Donation towards the PSFS welcome.
Tuesday 21st November. Nostalgia Evening. Back by popular demand and what is fast becoming a PSFS pre Christmas tradition, this evening of nostalgia and audience participation is run by our archivist Jacqui. A compilation of photos, newspaper articles etc of the St Stephens area in the past will be shown throughout the evening.
We encourage people to bring along photos, documents and memories to share on the night. There will also be a sale of second hand items including books, cd’s & dvd’s ideal for Christmas presents and stocking fillers with money raised going to the PSFS.
The evening will include an interval for mince pies and mulled wine/soft drinks, with donations to Society funds.
Bring your family and friends along for a pre Christmas trip down memory lane!
