Community - Fetcham Community Information
Bordering Leatherhead, on the western edge, is the village of Fetcham separated from Leatherhead by the Mill Pond springs and associated nature reserve, frequented by many species of birds including swans.
The centre of the village offers a variety of shops, with associated free car parking, that meet the day to day demands of the 8,000 population.
The Fetcham Conservation Area includes the impressive 18th century mansion of Fetcham Park House immediately adjacent to the 1,000 year old Parish Church of St Mary. The Well House, The Dower House and Ballands Hall are three of a cluster of old buildings in the area. Two popular village schools (Fetcham Infants and Oakfield) offer places for children up to 11 years of age. There are four halls for public hire and three churches in addition to the parish church.
Part of Norbury Park is in the Parish and Bocketts Farm, within the Park, offers unique recreation for children and adults. The western approach is through National Trust woodland and the River Mole, between Common Meadow and Slyfield Manor, completes the natural assets.
Fetcham is an active and vibrant community supporting a strong Residents Association, Womens Institute, Wives Group, Scouts and Guides and affiliated church groups.
