The Society seeks to chronicle, protect and enhance the heritage, character and environment of the Parish of Odiham and North Warnborough.

We publish two journals each year and run speaker evenings on local and interesting topics. At these events members meet and enjoy a glass of wine. Outings and a Christmas evening complete a busy annual programme of events.

A number of exciting projects are always on the go and we welcome volunteers who wish to become involved in serving our members and the community.

LATEST NEWS AND FORTHCOMING EVENTS

Society AGM and Nominations for the Executive Committee

 
The AGM of the Society will be held at the Cross Barn, Odiham on Friday 8 January 2016 following a talk at 7.45pm by Ranil Jayawardena called 'A New Boy at Westminster' about his experiences in Parliament as the new local MP.

An email has been sent to all members about nominations for the Executive Committee for 2016. The email contains a nomination form which must reach the Secretary at least seven days before the meeting.

 

HAVE YOUR SAY

Consultation on the Neighbourhood Plan ends at noon on November 30th. Endorsement is as important as critique. The Society's Committee has commended the plan and made a number of comments but membersí voices need to be heard to ensure the planís aims to manage development are achieved. You can make your voice heard in one of 3 ways:

Via an online Comment Form www.surveymonkey.com/r/presub
By emailing comments@onwardplan.com
Or by a letter to OnwardPlan, c/o the Clerk OPC, The Bridewell, The Bury, Odiham, RG29 1NB
 

Please note that even if you have commented previously on the earlier Plan version, you will need to do so again formally on this Pre-Submission version of the Plan for your comments to be considered.

Copies of the plan are available to read at the Parish Council office, the Library and Next Door at the George in Odiham; the Anchor, the Mill House and Purcell Rooms in North Warnborough; and online at www.onwardplan.com/presub
