Our Aims

Alvechurch Village Society (AVS) aims to enrich life for residents and visitors, by preserving and enhancing the beauty and character of Alvechurch and its surrounding villages in North Worcestershire.

The Society organises ...

  • Evening talks in Alvechurch Village Hall. Recent speakers have included broadcaster Joanne Malin and local landscape gardener and presenter of UKTV's Heaven's Garden, Hannah Genders.
  • Guided family-friendly walks along our attractive and varied Parish footpaths. In 2008 AVS members led a Parish boundary walk, reviving the old tradition of Beating the Bounds.
  • Environmental improvements including litter picks and planting thousands of daffodil bulbs. Volunteer AVS groups maintain 27 miles of Parish footpaths.

... and campaigns actively to protect the Green Belt, monitor planning developments, reduce traffic speeds and make the village cleaner. The Society has nearly 290 members, many of whom are actively involved in local community issues.

Why not join Alvechurch Village society and ...

take an active part in your local community. We have a strong voice on planning issues in the parish but we are not just about planning - we organise social events, improve the village environment and run entertainments and talks programmes plus we have regular countryside maintenance groups for those who fancy something a little more active, and of course we have a strong co-operation with all the other parish activities.
