Review 2017 planned

Our editors are seeking submissions for the next edition of Review, our biennial journal, due to be published in the spring of 2017 when we will also be celebrating the 50th anniversary of the society. The editors, Rosalind Hadden and John Trimble, are grateful for all the submissions received and encourage members to consider possible contributions this and to future Reviews. Articles for our next Review should be submitted by end of December 2016 but please advise the editors if you plan to submit anything. The editors reserve the right to edit or shorten any submission accepted for publication.

Copies of most of the Reviews published in the last 20 years are still available to purchase. Email us at for details.

Society awarded Charitable Status by HMRC and CCNI

Her Majesty's Revenue and Customs (HMRC) accepted Craigavon Historical Society as a charity for tax purposes with effect from 21 September 2010 - reference XT22811. On 18 November 2014 the Charity Commission for Northern Ireland confirmed that our application for charitable status was successful - our Northern Ireland charity number is NIC100483.

Charitable status permits us to make use of Gift Aid on subscriptions. It also gives us access to lower cost banking. These benefits will help us to keep our subscription rates to a minimum in future years. Any members who are tax payers and have not yet signed a Gift Aid agreement are encouraged to do so.

Society Outings

Members enjoyed two very successful outings in 2016 - to the Ulster Aviation Collection at Long Kesh for our evening outing in early May and to Fermanagh for our Saturday outing on 16 May.
