The Henleaze Society

Welcome to The Henleaze Society

The Henleaze Society is a charity, registered with the Charity Commission for England and Wales (number 269072).  It was established in 1973 to give a voice to local residents who had met to discuss their concerns about the impact of new and proposed developments in the area.  Residents were particularly concerned about the loss of local leisure facilities, at a time when house building was leading to an increase in the population of Henleaze.

In the 2020s, the aim of The Henleaze Society is still the same, namely “to ensure that Henleaze remains a good place in which to live and work”.  In fulfilling this aim, our key priorities are those listed below.  To see evidence of what we have achieved, follow the link to our Achievements page.

An annual subscription, which covers all household members, is £5 per annum within Henleaze or £7.50 (postage included) if outside the hand distribution area.  The subscription supports the Society’s activities and entitles members to receive a printed quarterly Newsletter, ad hoc email updates and invitations to events organised by the Society.  To join The Henleaze Society, or receive further information, please contact us.
