The Society

Our society was formed in September 2013 initially to research the lives of the 27 men on the Stockcross and Marsh Benham War Memorial Tablet. We were helped by the receipt of a grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund "1st World War Then and now" programme which has resulted in a book exhibition and this website.

S&SHA recently held their AGM where a full Co-Chairman’s report was circulated. Nothing much has happened during the past 18 months because of COVID. Meetings and visits needed to be cancelled although our website and Facebook Page continued to be updated. It highlighted the problems that SASHA has had, in common with many other clubs but now with the easing of lockdown SASHA’s committee are determined to encourage members and guests back to their monthly meetings.
It was proposed to change SASHA meetings from the evening of the last Monday in the month to the afternoon of the 2nd Wednesday of the month at 2pm. The disadvantages of this would be that working members would not be able to attend without taking leave. The advantages, in winter members would not have to drive or walk in the dark or slippy weather and by changing to a daytime meeting we would hope to encourage more members/guests. Another day could be arranged for any special speakers or any outings. This change was overwhelmingly agreed by the members. Meetings will commence in September, please see poster.
Thanks were given to the Sutton Hall for their continuing support.
