Fathers Day

Fathers Day is fast approaching and we’ve got some great gift ideas for you!

Why not give Dad (or Grandad) our latest publication, Memories of Margate? This beautiful book  investigates significant events in Margate’s history beginning with the first government land sales in the 1860s, early landowners, and the gradual development of the area that would one day become the suburb of Margate. Maps and photographs are used to illustrate a story enlivened by oral histories of former and present day residents.

Or head over to our Shop and check out our other publications available for purchase.

Alternatively, give him a gift of membership! What a great way to get support our local history and make new friends in the process!


The History Redcliffe management committee have decided with great regret to suspend planned events until further notice.

The health and safety of our members, friends and the the wider community must be safeguarded and, as such, the April general meeting and the Redcliffe cemetery walk will not proceed.  We are hoping to reschedule the cemetery walk after this current public health crisis has abated.

We will keep you updated regarding events planned for later in the year and hope to resume normal activity as soon as we can.
