The Chesham Society is the local amenity society for Chesham and the neighbouring parishes of Chartridge, Cholesbury-cum-St Leonards, Ashley Green, Latimer and Chesham Bois.

Since its foundation in 1957, the Society has worked to protect and enhance our everyday environment and to promote civic pride in our town.

We are a registered charity, with no political or religious affiliation. Our membership is made up of people who love Chesham and care about the past, present and future well-being of the town.

The Society initiates and promotes campaigns of local benefit and works in partnership with other voluntary groups and organisations to help achieve shared goals.

We publish a quarterly magazine for our members and organise a calendar of talks and social events, which non-members are welcome to attend for a small charge.
