The Society has a friendly and vibrant membership of 45. Meetings are held on the last Thursday of the month from February to June and September to December. We meet at Gwernyfed Rugby Club at 7 30pm. There is a wide variety of topics covered by local and visiting speakers. In July there is a trip usually tying in with a recent talk. In December there is either a visit to a seasonally themed event or the theatre. The programme can be found on this website.

The Society always has a display at the Talgarth Festival where they show some of the vast accumulation of memorabilia collected over the years.

New members are always made very welcome.
