In September 1997 a working party called the Hatfield Heath History Group met with the idea of producing a book on the History of Hatfield Heath. The 2000 Millennium book produced overwhelming interest which was a catalyst for the foundation of a successful Hatfield Regis History Society.
Hatfield Regis Local History Society was formed as a result of overwhelming interest shown after a village appraisal into what the parishioners wanted for the new millennium. Over the past 19 years the Society has become an established part of the Village community. It continues to research and develop historical material for past, present and future details to engage public interest.
