Great Kingshill

Residents' Association

The Great Kingshill Residents' Association (GKRA) is open to all residents of the village.

The Association exists to keep abreast of local matters such as planning concerns and road safety, and to co-ordinate activities such as village maintenance and social events.

The GKRA produces a quarterly newsletter; distributed to homes in Great Kingshill. Articles and advertisements are always welcome (please contact Newsletter Secretary - details on the GKRA Newsletters page).

We aim to keep our members informed about local issues through the Newsletter. We can also update you via email alerts which enable us to spread the word more promptly (if you'd like to receive email alerts please register using the link on the top right of this page).


The GKRA is run by a committee who are volunteers; they meet monthly (apart from August). We also have a team who organise events. We are always looking for more volunteers to either join the main committee, or the events team - any contribution of time is welcome so please use the Contact Us form if you would like to be contacted by a current committee member who will tell you what's involved.

We have a history of putting on fun and successful social events which are open to all - quizzes, village fetes and beer festivals, food and wine evenings, Easter egg hunts, etc. These don't happen by magic, and might not happen at all without people volunteering to help.

We collaborate with other local organisations - Hughenden Parish Council (HPC), Neighbourhood Action Group (NAG), Thames Valley Police, etc. You can see updates from these groups in the 'Local Information' section.

Great Kingshill is situated mid-way between Great Missenden and High Wycombe in Buckinghamshire and is a quiet Chilterns hamlet. It boasts two shops! Alongside the common is the local Spar Store, which offers everything you'll need, and at the top of Cryers Hill is a Post Office/Premier Convenience Store. It also boasts a Primary School, Cricket Club, Common and Village Hall. The countryside surrounding Great Kingshill is lovely, with lots of woods and footpaths to walk around.  The Red Lion, also by the common, is a comfortable and welcoming pub which also has a restaurant.
