The Whitchurch Society
It has always been considered that everybody in the village is a member of the Whitchurch Society.
When the Society was founded 40 odd years ago, one of its main functions was to review planning applications and solicit opinions. This process was overtaken by technology and now everyone can have their say on the SODC webpage..
There are three annual events – the four walks (New Year’s Day, Spring, Summer and Autumn), the Garden Walk (Open Gardens Event) in June and the Art & Craft Exhibition in November - all primarily organised by the Whitchurch Society Committee with additional support.
The four walks are organised by a group including Mike Scott, Roger Crawford and Richard Harris.
Ian Bruce with a large team of supporters organises the Garden Walk
Sally Woolhouse organises the Art & Craft Exhibition.
Although there are no longer regular meetings, the Whitchurch Society still exists and retains financial responsibility for the three annual events. The following officers are still in place. They take part in the annual events and are available to respond to any enquiries about the Society:
Chairman – Peter Smith
Secretary – Ian Bruce
Treasurer – Richard Williams
Enquiries should be directed to Ian Bruce in the first instance:-
