Letchworth Local History Research Group is the new name for the local history group founded and run by Mertsi Fisher for the past twelve years. We now want to emphasise that research and publication (in a variety of media) is our core activity and would like to welcome new, committed, members. No special skills are necessary, just regular attendance at our monthly meetings.

Meditation for inner peace.

Every Tuesday, 7.00pm to 9.00pm at St Christopher School.

Experience joy, deep tranquillity and the ability to deal better with whatever comes your way. You will be surprised how easy it is to gently guide your mind to experience deep rest and restore yourself.

Meditation is a secular practice and in the group we practise a variety of techniques.

Gently guide the mind to cultivating a quiet awareness and stillness that arises with taking your attention within. This is a secular practice.

The tutor guides you to a method appropriate for you. Suitable for all levels. Beginners welcome.

We meet on Tuesdays 7pm - 9pm at St Christopher School, Letchworth.

We have a cuppa after each session.

There is a charge to cover costs. Your guide is Neelam Taneja.

This is a form of meditation where natural material is used to encourage freedom of self-expression.  Alternate Wednesdays 1pm - 3pm  in the organiser’s garden in Hitchin - space for 6 people.

A lively discussion group that discusses life, the universe and everything!!!

We normally meet in the Spirella Building at 7.30pm to 9.00pm on the third Monday of every month - but please check with Dave Shane if you are coming to your first meeting.

There is a charge of up to £2.00 towards costs.


This group enters a team (or teams) in general knowledge quizzes held at various locations in Letchworth Garden City and other nearby towns and villages. We try to take part in a couple of quizzes a month - not on any specific evening - so if you know of a quiz near you that you'd like to take part in, join us & we'll fit it in. Or perhaps you know about a one-off quiz at the weekend.

The quiz nights we are planning to attend in the near future are shown in the Group Events column on the right.

We offer an interesting and varied range of speakers focusing on our industrial heritage.

This little group of enthusiasts would be very happy to hear from anyone who records
local weather statistics. If you would like to compare notes or meet up, please get in touch.
