Laxton has a Local History Group which began meeting in December 2008. The group meets monthly and now has its own web site: www.laxtonhistorygroup.org.uk .

At the present time we are trying to locate sources of information about Laxton - collections of photographs, accounts of life in Laxton, teaching materials about the village, letters, receipts etc. We are drawing up a directory of sources of information about the village. Laxton History Group recently completed research on the period 1900 - 1920 funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund. There are now four booklets relating to this period and a teaching and Learning Pack which are available from the Group's web site www.laxtonhistorygroup.org.uk . We always welcome any information relating to this or any other period in any form from remembered stories to physical artefacts. If you have anything to add, please let us know at info@laxtonhistorygroup.org.uk   Thank you.

We are also interested in people who have lived in the houses in Laxton in the past and in the changes to the names of various fields, strips, sykes etc. in the open fields. If you have information about any of these or other Laxton related items, we would be very pleased to hear from you.

We meet on the third Wednesday of the month in Laxton Village Hall at 7.30pm unless otherwise advertised. All welcome. £2 per person including refreshments.
