The Braughing Society

The Braughing Society, formerly known as the Braughing Conservation Society was established in 1972 with the following objectives:-

  1. To stimulate public interest in the parish.
  2. To promote high standards of planning and architecture.
  3. To secure the preservation, protection, development and improvement of features of historic and public interest, including footpaths.
  4. To preserve our natural environment.

The Society has around 300 paid-up members and is headed-up by a Committee which is democratically elected each year at our A.G.M. in October.

A keen interest is kept on all planning applications for developments in the village and comments are made, if appropriate, to the planning authority on the suitability or otherwise of these proposals.

As well as our commitment to conservation the society has an active social side.

Comprehensive WELCOME PACKS containing all useful information distributed by the Braughing Society to every newcomer to the Village.

The BRAUGHING PHOTOGRAPHIC COLLECTION is a unique store of photographs taken through the ages, some dating back to the 1800’s. Exhibitions of our photographic collection are shown periodically.

Once or twice a year we provide cakes, etc., for Sunday Teas in the Church Hall during the summer and also arrange Winter Fellowship Teas on two dates, one in December and the other in February each year.

If you are not already a member of the Braughing Society, please come along to one of our meetings, where you will be most welcome.
