If... you care about Downton, the character of the village, its environment;

If... you value the Conservation area which helps to protect historic houses, village greens & streetscapes;

If... you agree with the Neighbourhood Plan which supports affordable housing but protects the community against development excesses;

If... you get cross about litter, river pollution, or HGV’s flouting the lorry ban;

If... you also enjoy some of the good things our community can offer – from well kept footpaths and floral displays to talks and wine tastings.

Why not join us and help make a difference to Downton!

We always welcome new members, especially those with specific knowledge or skills - but all that is really required is an interest in your local community. If you'd like to know more, please contact a member of the committee - or join us by clicking here
