Quainton Village Society

Quainton Village Society was formed as a local amenity society in 1989 "to support the preservation of existing features of historical merit or public interest, and to encourage high standards in new developments in the village". The Society is a Registered Charity No. 802608. The committee looks at all relevant planning applications and considers the views of local residents; where appropriate, we convey our views to the planning department. Our role in this context is separate from but complementary to the Parish Council.

We also aim to promote knowledge of the history, geography and architecture of the parish through a number of publications, and we hold a small archive of photographs, maps and other material associated with the village.

We sponsor a Village Directory, listing the various clubs, organisations and services with names and contact details, and a Village Guide, giving a background to the village, its history and present day features.
