Woldingham is a beautiful place to live.  You will soon discover the wonderful countryside surrounding us too – look out for the bluebells in Church Wood in late March/early April. However, winters in Woldingham can be harsh; we suggest you keep a supply of grit and salt (available from Fairalls or Dunwoody’s), and always carry warm clothing, a torch and a spade in your car in winter.

There is always something going on in the village! You will find various societies and activity groups listed below (apologies if we have missed anyone out).
