The society was originally formed in 1975 for the village of Send only and in 1982 Ripley was included in the name as it was originally part of the ancient parish of Send.

The Society is an active one run by a committee of volunteers, many of whom have been involved with the history of the villages for over 30 years. Its aim is to to educate the public in the history of the ancient parish of Send and Ripley and of any nearby parishes. Considerable research has been conducted over the years and is fully documented by way of the many articles, which have been written by members.
The Society has produced a bi-monthly newsletter every year since 1975 and continues to do so to this day. This is free for all members and back issues are available for a small fee.

There is also a large library of photographs that has been collated and catalogued and is available on request. The Society has a museum based in Ripley, which is open at published times and the Society has produced some 11 books to date which have sold well throughout the years.
The Society supports local schools by offering Loan Boxes containing educational information on local history. They can also arrange visits to the museum and may be able to display school’s work in the museum and arrange speakers.
See EDUCATION for details.
Send and Ripley History Society became a registered charity in 1987 and relies totally on its membership to fund its activities. There is a full year long calendar of talks, films, tours and visits. Information will be found on the website and through the journals.
As is the case with so many villages in the UK, there is a wealth of history and knowledge, which is constantly being discovered and which continues to evolve with the passage of time. New information, photographs, documents, articles etc. are always keenly sought after and are very often lent or even donated to the Society.
An enthusiastic team are always ready to welcome new members to join.
