The Rickmansworth Society


In the late 1940’s and 1950’s a lot of the societies and organisations in the Rickmansworth area expanded their activities and grew in size as people returned fom the second world war and settled back into civilian life.

However, with no central organisation to coordinate these activities, there were often clashes of dates or several things on one day then nothing on the following week!

On 11th February 1953 the Rickmansworth Rotary Club wrote a letter to all local organisatons suggesting a meeting be held on March 15th to discuss the formation of a Rickmansworth Society.

The first Rickmansworth Week took place that same year from Saturday June 25th and has been held every year since!
