Bagshot Society


The future of the village is important and working for this should involve as many people as possible.

As a member of the Bagshot Society you will meet the people involved working for the future of the village, be kept informed of what is happening, be able have your say and, if you wish, find out how you can become involved.

We want as many people in the village to become involved in its future and would like you to join us.

The Society organises a programme of varied and interesting talks, and social events which are open to all (you do not have to be a member).

Our programme details are emailed to members, can be seen in the calendar on this site and the ‘upcoming events‘ on this site’s home page.  As the event approaches, details are also posted on facebook, twitter and the site’s blog, as well as posters in the village (look out for our own notice board outside Herbies).

Your involvement with the Bagshot Society can be as little or as much as you want, from supporting the Society by being a member and thus adding weight to the contributions we make, through volunteering with specific activities, to joining the committee.

The purposes of the Bagshot Society are:

  • Coordination between activities or groups in Bagshot
  • Stimulate interest and involvement in village affairs, being a focus for debate and campaigns on things affecting the village
  • Liaison with local government and agencies
  • Maintain the heritage of the village
  • Planning issues

Recent and forthcoming events

On 27 June we had an interesting and informative talk by Cllr Vivienne Chapman (portfolio holder for Environment and Health on Surrey Heath Borough Council) about Recycling & Waste.

Our AGM was held on 18 September.  The revised constitution (details here) was approved and three new members were elected to the committee.  The AGM business was followed by cheese and wine.

Our second village community clean-up on Saturday 28 September removed several sacks of litter from the environment.

The Orthodox church

Did you know that there is an Orthodox Christian monastery just down the road at Brookwood?

The St Edward Brotherhood is a small monastic community established in 1982. Their church is the resting place of the relics of Saint Edward the Martyr – murdered King of England.

We are pleased to welcome Fr Alexis from the Brotherhood to talk about, and answer questions on, the Orthodox Faith, the role of icons, and the Saint Edward Brotherhood – a talk he has modestly described as an “Orthodox Hotchpotch”.

Wednesday 23rd October at St Anne’s Church Centre hall (behind and to the the left of St Anne’s Church at the top of Church Rd.)

Talk starts at 7.30 pm. Refreshments available from 7.

All are welcome. Bagshot Society members free, non-members £2.
We look forward to seeing you.

Our annual ‘meet your councillors’ event  on Wed 22 January is your opportunity to ask your questions of your local councillors (parish, borough & county).

Questions may be submitted in advance by email to the society, or in writing, prior to the start of meeting.  Pre-submitted questions will be taken before questions from the floor.

Talks normally start at 7.30 pm with refreshments available from 7.

We look forward to seeing you.
