   The Society's monthly talks take place on the THIRD Tuesday of every month (except July and August) in the Bethany Centre, Bede Tower, Ryhope Road (opposite the heritage centre).  Doors are open at 6.40pm and talks commence at 7.30pm. Carriages are at 9pm. 

The society's Heritage Centre in Douro Terrace is open Wednesday and Saturday mornings 9.30 - noon all year round.

A number of queries have been received about the payment of annual subscriptions that are due now, or in the near future. These can still be paid in the usual manner but if you are used to paying personally at either Douro Terrace or at the monthly talk then PLEASE do send payment to the society at 6 Douro Terrace, Sunderland SR2 7DX or direct to our Treasurer, Linda King, at 3 Woodside, Sunderland, SR2 7ET

Renewal reminders are always enclosed with the relevant newsletter. If you are in any doubt as to whether your subscription is due or the method of payment in the forthcoming months then please do contact Linda King, our Treasurer by email:
