The Hersham Village Society (founded 1982) is Hersham's leading amenity group, it's members come from all walks of life and have one thing in common, they all care for the community of Hersham.
The Society is affiliated to the Elmbridge Residents Group and is represented on Elmbridge Borough Council by one borough councillor at the present time, although in the past it has had three borough councillors.
It frequently attains a high percentage of votes in local elections, and has on many occasions gained double the votes of the Labour or Liberal candidates.
Membership of the Society (annual subscription £5) is open to all residents and those having an interest in the Hersham community. Officers/party political councillors from the national political parties are forbidden from becoming members.
Our Hersham Community
During the 1979 local council election campaign, where he stood for the third time, Roy Green was asked by many residents if there could be an independent organisation to represent the village.
So in 1980 the Hersham Independents came into being followed in 1982 by the Hersham Village Society when the name was changed.
The founding members were: Ann Pollard, Bob Mott, Brenda and Roy Green and Anne Holland.
The Society is administered by an Executive Committee comprising four officers and up to sixteen members.
The Officers of the Society are:
President: Stan Still

Our Hersham is situated fifteen miles south west of London and in the county of Surrey UK.
A large part of Hersham sits in the metropolitan Green Belt, an area protected against large scale development.
Hersham is where town meets country, a few minutes from the centre of the village there are green fields and riverside meadows where sheep graze and residents can enjoy the delight and peace of the countryside.
