FLGCA


Fairlands in the parish of Worplesdon is situated just off the A323 between Aldershot and Guildford in Surrey. The association was formed in the 1950s in order to promote the benefit of the inhabitants of Fairlands, Liddington Hall, Gravetts Lane, Holly Lane and the Aldershot Road from Liddington Hall Drive to Holly Lane. For a full copy of our objectives please see our constitution. Download a copy here.

The association is based around the community centre in Fairlands Avenue, which provides an umbrella for various groups.
 

The FLG club has a bar and runs  men's’ and ladies’ darts teams. The club is for members only, but membership is available for people inside and outside the area of benefit. There is a popular quiz on the third Wednesday of the month and a regular programme of events.


There is a large Hall as part of the community centre which can be hired for a very reasonable fee. There is a kitchen and separate access to the bar.

Various sections and affiliated clubs are run with varying degrees of independence, but with the overall objectives stated in the first paragraph above in common. There are flourishing art and drama groups and as well as packs of Brownies and Girl Guides. There is also a Ramblers group.


There are playing facilities attached to the community centre and these provide the home for Fairlands Cricket Club in the summer. Winter football teams also use the facilities Guildford Park has a team in the Guildford and Woking Alliance League and plays on Saturdays. 
 

All sections and affiliated clubs are there for the benefit of the community and would welcome new members—follow the links on the contact us page on the navigation on the top left of this page to join these groups.

What does the FLGCA do for the Community?


The FLGCA provides a centre for community activities, a community hall and keeps the recreation field in good order. As usual with such associations a small band of volunteers give up a great deal of their spare time to ensure smooth running and that faciliities are kept in good order. The association has also engaged directly with local councils on matters such as flooding, illegal parking , dog fouling and the clearing of hedges.

The association operates as a not-for-profit organisation with charity status, but it needs your support - come down and join the club, use the facilities and enjoy yourself.
