The Just William Society is a group of friendly people united in their love for the immortal rascal created by Richmal Crompton.

It is open to all William admirers young and old from all around the world.


Each year the Society organises a meeting to which all William fans are invited. There are books, talks, news, discussions not to mention the acting of one of the radio plays – in short everything a William fan could desire.

In these pages you will find full details of how to join us, including special free membership (and a super introductory pack) for all junior members of up to 15 years old.

We have had an enquiry from a media student in Welwyn for information about the first William film, Just William. Do any of you have any information or material (pictures, cuttings etc), that we can send to him. He asked particularly about Welwyn Studios where the film was made.If any of you have any other stuff perhaps you could please send it to us so that we can forward it on.


Sorry, the special binders have run out. We hope to get another order in the future.

We have been asked to try and find any family connection for Zillah
Hayes. She was married to Alick Hayes who wrote one of the Just William plays. It is believed that Zillah and her husband have both died.

The lady who has made the enquiry has an original painting by
Zillah, in the style of a children's book illustration, which she gave to the ladies mother
in 1941 when they both worked at the BBC. Any help would be appreciated
