The Society has represented the community’s interests in a number of campaigns to maintain the character and sustainability of the village. Successful campaigns include saving the Black Horse pub, the school, the shop, as well as working with partners on the Gurkha Bridge over the River Arun and supporting the ACTNOW campaign renovating the St Michaels church tower.. The Society is also involved in reviewing planning applications for housing developments both private and social.

The success of the campaigns shows how effective joint action by local communities can be. The Society relies on support from the community
