West Dereham is a small village in West Norfolk close to the town of Downham Market.
The aims of the Heritage Group are to research and record the past of our village and to learn more about the local area. Our first meeting was held in November 2005. We meet monthly, generally on the 3rd Thursday of each month in the Village Hall located in Church Road, (see map) and arrange regular speakers or outings.
Subscription fees are £15 per person per year. There is no extra charge to members for a general meeting however, if we have a speaker there is a small charge to cover costs. Alternatively you can become a Friend of West Dereham Heritage Group for £10.00 a year.
