Walking routes ~ a network of public footpaths throughout the parish have been knitted together to form a selection of circular routes of varying length.  These are available from the Plough Inn or Cllr Philip Williams on A4 and include a route map. You can also download your copy from the Public Documents section.

Little Dewchurch Social Committee (LDSC) ~ this very proactive committee was formed in 2015 and organises a variety of community events throughout the year.
