'Formed in 1976 to encourage and promote the study of family history in Buckinghamshire including the historic county. With over 1000 members the Society caters for those with Bucks ancestry and members researching ancestry elsewhere. There are regular meetings held in Aylesbury, Bourne End and Bletchley. Most meetings have a speaker talking about an aspect of family history although we do have occasional themed meetings where members are invited to talk on a subject from their own family history research.'

'Butterflies and moths are a vital part of our wildlife heritage and are valuable as sensitive indicators of the health of our environment. The stark fact is that butterflies and moths continue to decline at an alarming rate, despite Butterfly Conservation's best efforts over the last 40 years ... Butterfly Conservation's strength derives from its Branches and the 40,000 members they embrace ... Branch members are some of Britain’s most enthusiastic volunteer conservationists. Public events are held all year round, including butterfly walks, moth events and countless conservation days.'
