Barkham Village Residents Association

The Barkham Village Residents Association was established in 1987. It came about initially in response to a Planning Application for some development within the Coombes - a woodland rich in a diversity of wildlife and designated a Local Wildlife Site, a Local Geological Site and most of it also listed as Ancient Woodland. Planning issues remain an interest of the BVRA.

After the threat to the Coombes subsided, the association continued to contribute to Barkham's community spirit by running social events and the production of a quarterly newsletter. 


Membership of the BVRA extends to most households in the village. Subscription is currently £2 per year per household which includes all 4 issues of the newsletter. For more details about membership and how to pay your subscription please click here.


The newsletter is issued 4 times a year and delivered direct to your door. If you do not currently receive a copy please contact the membership secretary to join the BVRA.

Newsletter Distributors

Distributors are a vital part of the newsletter process - without them we could not deliver to houses in Barkham as we do at the moment. Duties are not onerous and consist of delivering the newsletters 4 times per year. If you feel that you could help please contact the membership secretary.
