Little Kingshill Village Society

 

The village society was founded in 1962 with just 30 members and has grown from small beginnings. By 1972, ten years on, membership had increased to 153 households and has since risen steadily to 467 in 2015.

 

 

Our Vision

 

Quality of village life lies at the heart of our vision for Little Kingshill. We want every member of our community to be able to enjoy the natural beauty of the village, its rural setting and rich heritage and benefit from superior local amenities and infrastructure: public spaces, buildings, footpaths, highways and the surrounding countryside.

 

By providing a channel for the voice of the community and bringing the village together at events, we aim to foster a tangible sense of community spirit, belonging and pride.

Our Mission

 

The Society will concern itself with any matter that threatens to erode the quality of village life. To this end, we will make representation to appropriate bodies and ensure that those villagers affected are informed. Current campaigns include opposition to the HS2 and proposals to remove large areas of the village from Green Belt. At every opportunity, we will strive to protect and encourage improvements to local facilities.

 

We will collaborate with other local interest groups and organise social events to raise funds in support of chosen causes. By monitoring and reporting potential hazards and incidents of crime, through co-operation with the Neighbourhood Watch network and our local Neighbourhood Police Team, we aim to create an environment in which villagers feel safe and protected from harm.

Little Kingshill Village Society Handbook

 

The Village Society produces a handbook annually. The contains village news, useful information and details of local contacts and services. The Handbook is distributed by volunteers to residents who have registered their interest in receiving a copy. Also, a number of previous residents like to keep in touch with what is happening in the village and receive the handbook by post If you would like to receive a copy (presently included with a £4.00 fee for membership of the Village Society) please let us know

We would also be very grateful for more volunteers to take on the task of delivering the Handbook to a few local residents
