Haslemere is a historic town of great charm. Its setting in wonderful countryside in the Surrey Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and its good transport links make it a much sought after place in which to live. The town is vibrant and cherished and the Society does not resist change, but seeks high standards of appropriate development and the careful planning of amenities and facilities, which are as much a concern for the Society as is conservation. The Haslemere Society has a substantial membership whose influence is widely respected. The committee appreciates its active involvement and support. New members are very welcome. You can help to shape Haslemere's future by joining the Society. "
