The Highams Park Society was formed in 2006 and sets its goal as “Helping Promote Community Life”. The Society has a thriving membership of over 200 people who live in, or have an interest in Highams Park, a neighbourhood on the London/Essex borders.
The Society’s aims are to help preserve our local heritage, to help members appreciate their environment and to inform members about the history of the area.
The Society arranges walks, talks and coach trips to places of interest. A group of volunteers tidies and looks after the garden and flower beds in Highams Park Station. Our monthly Film Club is also popular with local residents.
The Society has put on exhibitions in the past on topics of local interest. The subjects have included ‘Schools of Highams Park’, ‘Streets of Highams Park’, ‘The Xylonite Factory’ and ‘Lost Properties of Highams Park’.
The Society also organises Highams Park Day on Vincent Green, Vincent Road which is now in its sixth year.
Membership fees are kept very low and affordable and we would be delighted to welcome you to the society. Please see the Membership page for more details.
The Highams Park Society is sponsored and supported by Hobsons Property Sales and Lettings, 30 The Avenue, Highams Park.
