We aim to: stimulate public interest in the history, character and beauty of Westham village; act as a forum for conservation issues raised by residents; and encourage wise conservation, enhancement and improvements around the village.
The group was formed in July 2014 because, in terms of conservation (in its widest sense) there was a leadership vacuum within the village. As a result, part of our heritage had been destroyed by an unwanted housing development, and there were plans to build more unwanted properties along an historic lane that was used by the Romans and currently forms part of the 1066 Route which is enjoyed by walkers, cyclists and horse riders. Since the group was formed, it has been successful in stopping planned housing developments along the lane, and it has grown from 3 to over 120 members in just 8 months.
Our membership year starts on 1 November. Any new members joining after 1 June, your subscription is valid until 31 October of the following year.
