The Association / About us
Since 1932 the Residents Association has sought to support the residents of Fetcham in a variety of ways. Set up as a non political organisation, originally established as a Ratepayers Association, it has since diversified into many areas that include Planning, Highways, the Environment, Recreation and Schools. Maintaining close contact with Mole Valley District and Surrey County Councillors, all of whom regularly attend both the Committee and General Meetings we are able to exchange information receiving updates from them and passing on and highlighting any concerns from residents.
WHAT DO WE DO - Communicate, be an information source collating and passing on information through our various channels, meetings, publications, notice boards, website and social media, we aim to inform our members on a variety of issues that may affect the village community. From council initiative and services to local events. With an ever increasing paperless society, community information doesn't always necessarily come to you, you have to go it! So we hope to serve a purpose and bridge that gap. Similarly we are able to collate our residents concerns to endorse and hightlight the extent of a common concern. Community Investment; we try to keep our village traditions going by investing in the future of the village and supporting the children of Fetcham, with annual bursaries as our forebearers. As well as bring the community together at Christmas for the Tree Lighting Celebration. Environment; we keep the village in bloom with seasonal planting, Christmas trees and lights. Protect our historical buildings, green spaces and trees with our Tree Wardens. Planning; Our planning team aims to keep members informed of larger proposed developments and offer support if required. Roads & Transportation; liaising with the councils, we seek to highlight and chase highway issues and road repairs and keep Fetcham connected with services and transport links. Projects; supported by additional funding we seek to reinvest in the community. Recent projects include the purchase of new play equipment at Cannon Grove and tree planting schemes in Cannon Grove and Badingham Drive areas. We are hoping to reinstall the public benches within the historical mill pond area.
As a team of volunteers we work with the village's best interest at heart, an executive Committee manages the Association and meets monthly with all members of the Committee being re-elected each year, their experiences based upon a wide variety of occupations and backgrounds. Always in need of extra help interested parties are very welcome. Contact us!
