Talk by Stephen Gilburt. This illustrated talk will tell the story of the buildings and some of the colourful characters associated with Zion and Chase Side Chapels and Christ Church Congregational Church Chase Side Enfield since 1780. Several members also had active roles in the local community, with Rev Henry Storer Toms and George Spicer campaigning to establish a School Board for Enfield and Dr John James Ridge seeking to improve public health in the late 19th century. In the 20th century Rev Ebenezer Rees was a founder, chairman and later president of the Enfield Preservation Society (the former name of The Enfield Society) and was involved with many other local organisations.

Joint meeting with the Edmonton Hundred Historical Society.

A regular programme of talks is arranged by the Enfield Society. These are free to members and non-members are welcome to attend for a modest charge (typically £1 per meeting). Refreshments will be available and our sales counter will be open. Jubilee Hall, 2 Parsonage Lane, is near the junction with Chase Side and there is an access ramp for wheelchairs.
