Fetcham Residents Association
Located in the heart of Surrey, Fetcham is surrounded by beautiful countryside, the Surrey Hills and Downs being within walking distance of the village.
Being an area of outstanding beauty walking and cycling routes are in abundance. The core of the village has a good selection of shops for everyday needs most of them independent family run businesses all with the added bonus of free parking directly outside the shops.
There are churches to suit all denominations and recreational facilities for all available either in the village or nearby in Leatherhead, where there is a Leisure Centre, Swimming Pool and Station. Bocketts Farm to the south of the village offers entertainment and a 'hands-on' farming experience for families, while 'The Bell' is the local public house located at the top of The Street in Bell Lane.
Dating back to the Domesday Book Fetcham has historical connections some of which still exist today, the 18th Century Mansion of Fetcham Park House, St Marys Church a Grade II* listed medieval building and The Mill Pond springs, a large number of chalk springs, still used to supply potable tap water today.
Fetcham has its own schools (Fetcham Village Infants and Oakfield School), a Doctor's Surgery (The Molebridge Practice in Cannonside), two Dental Surgeries (Orchard Cottage in Cobham Road and the Astek Dental Centre in Cannon Grove and a Veterinary Surgery situated in the village centre.
There are several restaurants and eateries in Fetcham for a sandwich and a cuppa (The Bakery/Harringtons and Greenwise) or an evening meal at Fetcham Tandoori or Carlos Trattoria.
But adding the 'r' into Fetcham is the community, a good number of groups and organisations offering social interaction and recreation make it 'Fetcharm'.
