We believe that biodiversity is vital for our health and well-being as well as providing important functions that we rely on, such as pollination of plants and the control of pests. The group has been operating for three years and has organised a number of well supported community activities including plant and moth surveys and bat walks. Most events are aimed particularly at children and young people with the aim of increasing their awareness of the treasures of the natural world in Long Crendon. We are also working with Long Crendon School and plan to extend the range of activities in the coming year.

When it was set up in the late 1970s the objects of the Long Crendon Village Association (LCVA) were ' carry on the business of a club by providing for the use of its members, the means of social intercourse, mutual helpfulness, mental and moral improvement, rational recreation and the other advantages of a club.'

Since then, for tax reasons, the charitable activities of the LCVA have been split from the business activities, so Long Crendon Community Social Club Ltd was set up.

LCVA is responsible for the Village Centre buildings and lettings. The other activities of the club are handled by the LCCSC ( is coming shortly!)

Regular training through Matt Fiddes Martial Arts delivers much more than just physical improvement. Your strength, flexibility, endurance, balance, and confidence will increase considerably, but this is only the start. Physical skills act as a foundation for something much more important: the development of value skills, both mental and spiritual.

Children at our schools learn life skills such as, Respect, Discipline, Goal setting, Concentration, Stranger Danger, First Aid and lots more besides.

The Matt Fiddes Martial Arts method incorporates a combination of techniques and principles from a variety of martial arts styles including Karate, Kickboxing, Tae Kwon Do, Ju Jitsu, the use of martial arts weapons, and Kung Fu, all of which provides our students with a well-balanced, self-defence system. Bringing together the best of a range of styles into an integrated system gives our students the advantage they need to protect themselves in virtually any situation.

The Matt Fiddes Martial Arts Schools have been helping people improve their lives through teaching Martial Arts since 1997. Our main goal is to enhance self-esteem and confidence in a member. We achieve this through building self-confidence and character, and by developing a sense of respect for others, in addition to teaching incredibly effective self-defence skills and action-packed, fun classes!
