Fleet and Church Crookham are the main centres of population in Hart District which is a rapidly growing area of North East Hampshire, currently with a population in excess of 80,000. In 2011, 2012 and 2013, the Halifax reported that Hart District scored the highest for quality of life. See Daily Telegraph report. Accordingly Fleet and Church Crookham remain popular places to live and there is continual pressure to increase housing availability.
Our Society is concerned with the amenity of the area and its main aims are:
- To stimulate public interest in Fleet & Church Crookham and the immediate surroundings
- To promote high standards of planning and architecture in the area
- To secure the preservation, protection, development and improvement of features of historic or public interest in the area.
In these pages you will find information about the Society and its activities. If you would like details of membership, visit our Membership page, or feel free to contact us with any comments or suggestions.
The Society is delighted to announce David Bentley as our Chairman.
We are delighted that a new chairman has been found for the Fleet & Church Crookham Society.
You may have seen in our last newsletter that we sought a new chairman to take the helm of this much-loved community organisation from the end of April 2015 or the Society would be forced to close. We are delighted that David Bentley and his partner Jane Rippon have come forward to join the committee, with David taking on the chairman role.
David & Jane recently moved to Zebon Copse, but previously lived in neighbouring Aldershot. They are looking forward to getting to know Fleet and Church Crookham and taking an active role in our community through the Society's work.
We are always looking for new committee members, or involvement in a less formal capacity through input of ideas or one-off help. One of the projects we are getting off the ground is to list Assets of Community Value in the area (see last newsletter); if you would like to know more about this please get in touch. .
