About WVA

Westcott Village Association is run by a committed group of volunteer residents who are passionate about preserving Westcott’s rural charm and character and ensuring that Westcott continues to be a great place to live and work.

We undertake the majority of the functions of a Parish Council but all we ask for is a voluntary household contribution towards funds which will be used for projects in the village.

We work hard to maintain and enhance all aspects of the village environment and our community resources, dealing with issues affecting the village including planning, noise, highways, countryside matters and funding for items that will benefit the community. 

Westcott Village Association is a registered charity and all Westcott residents over the age of 18 are considered to be members and are encouraged to attend open meetings to raise issues and vote on matters as they arise.

WVA funds over recent years have been spent on things like

  • The new Welcome to Westcott Notice board by the green to promote local events and activities
  • The Defibrillator kit outside the Village Shop
  • Community Speed Watch training and equipment to deter speeding through the village
  • Providing a Christmas Tree on the village green with the support of the Westcott100 Group
  • Achievement awards at Surrey Hills All Saints Primary School
  • Sponsorship of a young resident representing Great Britain in martial arts competitions
  • Cricket equipment for the Westcott Sports Club Ladies team
  • Equipment sponsorship at WestFest
  • Youth Club equipment
  • Funding replacement memorial benches on Westcott Heath to commemorate those who lost their lives in an Air Raid on Westcott during WWII on the 4th January 1944
  • Contributing towards the Lest We Forget British Legion Silent Soldier
  • Sponsoring annual awards at Surrey Hills All Saints School
