Early Successes

Early public meetings were held at The Crown or in the parish rooms which were attached to the Vicarage in London Street. The Parish Rooms were later converted into the vicarage garage.

  • As a result of lobbying by The Chertsey Society, the District Council agreed to The Society’s proposal that residents should have the right to see and comment on the plans.
  • Hard work paid off when proposed alterations to the town theatened the historic view. The Society succeeded in preserving the street line in Guildford Street.
  • Photographic Competition
  • When, in 1963-1964, a scheme was put forward for improvments to the area surrounding Chertsey Bridge, the Society's proposals were  ‘highly commended’ by The Civic Trust, and subsequently implemented by the District Council.
