Windlesham Village Chuch

The Windlesham Society is a village organisation open to all Windlesham residents. It was originally founded in 1978 and re-established in 2012 as a non-political, charitable organisation. It has a wide-ranging brief including the preservation and enhancement of our local heritage and natural environment. Windlesham is a village in the Surrey Heath borough of Surrey and its name derives from the Windle Brook which runs south of the village into Chobham and the suffix ‘ham’, the Old English word for ‘homestead’.

 

 

The Windlesham Society is a registered charity. If you are a resident please become a member. If you live outside the village and would like to support Windlesham, please click the donate button below. Thank you.
