Working with you to make Putney and Roehampton great places for living, working and enjoyment. Have your say!
Welcome to The Putney Society
Founded in 1959, The Putney Society is concerned with aspects of the community which contribute to the quality of our local life.
These include the built environment and open spaces such as parks and commons; transport and community services. The Society has played a key role in the enhancement and protection of these vital facilities in Putney and Roehampton since its inception.
This homepage gives you links to: current local issues relating to Buildings, Community, Open Spaces and Transport and how you can contribute ideas to our discussion forums at monthly panel and members' meetings; who to contact and how. The Society also organises lively Social, Cultural and Heritage events including a blue plaque scheme, a history book and audio guide of the area. With well over 1500 members including individuals, households, businesses, schools, voluntary groups and councillors, the Society has an influential role to play in local society and government. Members receive a monthly Bulletin with the latest news and photographs relating to the Society's work and issues. We hope that you will join the Society to help us continue to provide an effective voice in the community.
