The origins of the Society can be traced back to 1926 when at a dinner dance in Cuckfield,
a local Minister, Rev Boyd, led a committee to re-launch a Caledonian Society. The
aims were, as at present, to promote Scottish Culture through a series of social
events. An account of the function was detailed in the local newspaper.
