Fulmer is often described as “the prettiest village in South Bucks”. It has won the Buckinghamshire Best Kept Village competition many times, including the 2014 title. Nestling deep in the beautiful valley of the River Alderbourne, it is also one of the first truly separate villages outside the suburban sprawl of Greater London, with excellent road links into the capital and onto the national motorway network as well as fast access to a choice of rail and underground stations.
Protected within the Green Belt and with a Conservation Area at its heart, its charm and character should be preserved for generations to come. It is a magnet for those who appreciate rural calm and lovely country walks, alongside all the advantages of modern-day living.
Yet this tiny village with less than 500 residents is definitely "not just a pretty face". Underneath its peaceful facade of quaint cottages and desirable country residences, there is a vibrant community spirit and a deep, genuine, welcoming friendliness. In Fulmer, you know your neighbours and have ample opportunities to join in with village activities.
There are several annual village events, including Fulmer Day (village fête) in June, the Bonfire Night fireworks celebrations at the recreation ground and the Christmas Party in the village hall.
Our pub, the Black Horse, is at the heart of the village and offers good beer and an excellent restaurant.
Fulmer Village Hall, situated in the centre of the village, hosts parties, sales gatherings, meetings, concerts and performances. If you wish to book an event, find out more here.
The King George V recreation ground is the focus for sports including football, cricket and tennis. The Pavilion is also available for private bookings for meetings and parties and the Guide and Scout huts and the allotments are adjacent.
St James' Church, part of the two St. James parish, twinned with St. James Gerrards Cross, is a thriving Anglican parish church in the centre of the village. There is an active programme of services and events to which all members of the community are very welcome.
Fulmer Infant School, in Alderbourne Lane, is very much at the heart of the community and joins enthusiastically in all village activities. It is a very popular Local Education Authority school for children aged 4-7, taught in three year groups, with around 60 children in the whole school.
