Betchworth & Buckland Society

The Betchworth & Buckland Society was formed almost 60 years ago, in order to:

  • Protect the natural and built environment in the two villages

  • Provide financial support / advice for projects that enhance village life

  • Encourage interest in local history, culture and character

  • Promote social events, bringing together residents and to raise funds

The Society’s objectives include monitoring actual or proposed changes around the locality and giving members a voice. This includes lobbying for the protection of Sites of Special Scientific interest (SSSI zones), the Green Belt, maintenance of the water table, control of local air traffic or any other risks concerning our environment.

Membership costs £10 per annum and benefits include access to events throughout the year, including lectures and highlights being the Annual Dinner and Christmas Drinks.
