The Wombourne & District Scientific & Natural History Society was founded in January 2007 in order to promote and discuss all aspects of science and the humanities. Our first meeting attracted over 150 visitors with more than 100 of them now being full members.
We meet (usually) on the 3rd Thursday each month in the Community Centre (Wombourne Library), Church Road, Wombourne.
The Society is friendly, broad-based, for any level of interest. Our speakers include professionals and enthusiasts. There is something for everyone!
We look forward to welcoming you to our meetings and when you do come along, please say hello!
