The Wimbledon Society

The Society

Founded in 1903, The Wimbledon Society is committed to protecting all those local amenities which contribute to our quality of life.

Community facilities and the built environment of open spaces, parks and buildings form a fundamental part of our lives. The Society has played a key role in the enhancement and protection of these vital facilities since its inception.

Civic Societies provide an army of volunteers from their ranks of members, who bring time, skills and commitment in seeking the preservation of the best of our heritage for now and for the future. Societies such as ours form a truly independent body of opinion acting entirely for the community benefit and, importantly for today, are free of political or commercial influence.

This homepage links to other main pages. We hope our site will provide you with all the information you may seek about Wimbledon and the Society. Most of all, we hope that, if you feel about our Town as we do, you will join the Society and help us to continue to provide a strong and effective voice in the community.

On 1 January 2017, the Society became a company limited by guarantee. The key documents on the right show the Constitition for the unincorporated body, as well as the Articles for the new limited company.

The Wimbledon Society is a Registered Charity, no 1164261.

Windmill Family Day

 

On Sunday 12 August 2018, there will be a fun-packed FREE family activities day at the Windmill on Wimbledon Common, 2pm to 5pm. There will be craft activities, cooking demos and face-painting. You can make your own paper windmill and museum curator Norman Plastow will explain how he makes his wonderful models. Come and join us!

Crossrail 2

Crossrail 2 is a proposed new railway serving London and the wider South East. There is detailed information on the website www.crossrail2.co.uk. The proposals will have a major impact on Wimbledon. The Society's planning committee has been following the emerging proposals put forward by TfL, and as part of the consultation procedure, we have written two key letters, and a detailed report. These can be read by selecting the links below.

This is probably the biggest development to affect Wimbledon since the first railway to open up this area was built in the 19th century.

The letters and our comments can be viewed under the News Section of the Planning pages.
