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.
The Wimbledon Society is a Registered Charity, no 269478.
