Jevington and Filching Residents Association

Scroll Down for: Details - Meetings - Events - Contact Details

The Jevington and Filching Residents Association is a forum for issues that affect the Communities of Jevington and Filching. It is a membership organisation to which residents pay a subscription to meet the administration and operating costs as well as support some activities. Members who have subscribed to the Association will receive a copy of the draft Minutes by email in advance of each meeting.

The Residents Association was formed in 1990 following the demise of the Jevington Parish Council and its incorporation into Willingdon and Jevington Parish Council. It has been involved in establishing several memorials around the Village and supported the Village Hall (old Schoolroom) and various small repairs and maintenance tasks.

The settlement of Jevington and Filching is a small community which is vulnerable to losing its sense of purpose if the Community does not come together from time to time. The Residents Association will hopefully help to provide such focus, through activities and events run by and for the residents and neighbouring communities.
