Since its beginning in 1981 the Society has built up an important collection of material relating to the history of Poulton-le-Fylde and the surrounding area, through the generosity of many local people.

Members of the Committee are always pleased to know of any material of local interest – for example photographs, books, maps or newspapers – which might be loaned and copied, or donated to the Society.

The archives are used extensively for research into the history of the area and for exhibitions and displays promoting the history of Poulton.
