Berkswell Clubs and Societies

The Berkswell Society

The Berkswell Society at work

The Berkswell Society was originally formed in 1973 to confront the threat of coal mining in the area – a battle which was won. It is a not-for-profit organisation established to preserve the amenities of the Parish, and to protect and secure the rights and interests of the residents.

What do we do?

The Berkswell Society has evolved into a form of residents association. It is run by volunteers who care about Berkswell – village and parish. As a non-political and non-sectarian organisation it aims to do all that is necessary to preserve the amenities of the parish, and to protect and secure the rights and interests of the residents and all who enjoy Berkswell Parish.

The Berkswell Society at work

Our key activities involve installing and maintaining flower planters across the Parish, planting spring bulbs in verges and green spaces and organising litter picks. More recently we have planted apple trees in Riddings Hill Estate in a “fruit for free initiative” and planted and maintained roundabouts and “godcakes” on local roads. We work closely with the Parish Council to ensure on-going conservation and enhancement of our community assets. We also publish a periodic newsletter which is sent out by e-mail to let members know what is going on in the Parish.

How do I join?

Most members simply help look after their own area by mowing and planting verges or looking after planters. Others help across the Parish. Some join just to get the e-mail newsletter to know what is going on. If you would like to join for whatever reason please contact Andrew Burrow phone: 01676535191, email: andrewsburrow [at] gmail.com
