'The Society was founded in Cheltenham in 1928 at a time when there was little official information published about locomotive stock, their allocations or regular duties. The Society set about rectifying this by members writing to each other, the publishing of a magazine and some meetings organised around the country ... Move on to the present day and the Society is still going strong with 3000 members ... Our branches hold meetings at least monthly in the season at over thirty centres and in the course of a year host over 200 presentations on a vast range of railway subjects covering the modern scene as well as history and nostalgia subjects.'

'Formed in 1983 with the aim of securing the long-term future of the Slough to Windsor branch line. Fortunately, British Rail did not close the line and the SWRS has moved on to other things. Today, the Slough & Windsor Railway Society seeks to preserve and study the railway history of Slough, Windsor and the surrounding areas, and provides a haven for local railway enthusiasts to socialise and reminisce ... Every Friday evening, members meet ... for an illustrated talk, usually on the subject of railways.'

'Supports beekeepers and those interested in bees in the Thames Valley area. We are an active society with about 100 members who come from all over the world and from all walks of life. Some of us are complete beginners while others have a wealth of experience, but we all share a passion for maintaining healthy bees and producing high quality honey ... We have an active programme of meetings throughout the year for Society Members.'
