Welcome to our site. Here you can find the latest news, information about us, what we are doing and what we are trying to achieve for Beaconsfield. The Beaconsfield Society aims to conserve, enhance and develop Beaconsfield’s distinctive character for the benefit of present and future residents. We also try to encourage residents to become involved in the community and if you wish to join us we would be delighted to welcome you.
The Society held this year’s Beaconsfield Now! celebration on Saturday 13 June 2015 where nearly 40 local organisations braved the rain and cold to showcase their work. We thank all who contributed and especially members of the community who supported us. A report on the event will be posted shortly.
Community organisations, including our own, together with the Beaconsfield Town Council has conducted a wide ranging consultation exercise in order to develop a Vision for Beaconsfield. Its interim conclusions were summarised in a document titled Creating a Better Beaconsfield: Towards a Town Plan for Beaconsfield 2015-2020 which was presented to the Town Council on 23 July. The Council will now be considering its proposals and will report back after the summer break. The document can be accessed via the Vision for Beaconsfield website or directly by clicking on Creating a Better Beaconsfield.
Our Annual General Meeting will be held this year on Thursday 5 November in the Fitzwilliams Centre after which there will be a talk Bugging the Nazis by Dr Helen Fry who will describe the work at the secret wartime interrogation centres at Wilton Park and Latimer House. The Draft Minutes of the 2014 AGM can be seen in the Archive section.
