Preservation Society was formed in 1987,
primarily to fight the proposed Beech Hill development. In
1989 it was renamed the Swanland
Village Association (SVA) to reflect its growing
range of activities.
Since then it has evolved to be a dynamic force within the

closely with the Parish Council and other local Authorities.

to represent the views of ALL villagers, not just SVA members.
However, new members are always welcome to involve more
people – it only costs £2 per year. An annual
general meeting, open to the public is held annually at
which the committee are elected. Committee meetings are
held every three months. View
