As an association, we strive to act as a mouthpiece for our village’s residents, representing their needs and presenting their problems to local councils. We want to protect our lively wildlife, green fields and period buildings from harmful development.
Chaired by Chris Davies, The Maidencombe Residents’ Association (MRA) is composed of a nine-person committee and enthusiastic members. We want to reinvigorate our village and protect our wildlife, and so we’re always on the look out for great ideas and new members!
We are a vibrant and active group of village residents and hold many social events throughout the year including Quiz Nights and a Summer Fete. Our aim is simple: to raise funds for good causes and bring our local community together.
We’re thrilled to announce the planning committee rejected the development application! We’d like to thank every one of our members and the village for their continued support. The developers may wish to appeal but we will keep you updated with any further news. Click below to join our fight to protect Sladnor Park and the surrounding wildlife on Facebook.
Come join us for a socially distanced festive get-together on the village green on Saturday 19th December 2020 from 5:30pm. Due to current restrictions we ask that you wear a mask but please bring your own tipple to stay warm!
As part of our desire to protect Maidencombe, the MRA had a meeting on 28th January 2020 at Torquay Town Hall to formulate a plan for the future regarding Torbay Coast & Countryside Trust (TCCT)'s management of various plots of land within the village.

14th August 2019: the MRA will be holding a committee meeting at the Thatched Tavern to discuss a wide range of topics. From 7:30pm and open to anyone so please come along.
January 2020: We are tentatively scheduling another safari supper for mid-to-late January. If you would like to participate please get in touch.
As a village comprising of mostly elderly people, and with the spread of Coronavirus, many of our residents may be forced to self-isolate. It is a difficult situation to confine yourself at home and so we would like to reach out to any of those affected. If you need any help, for example someone to collect your medicines or groceries, then please don’t hessite to get in touch.
Send us an email or call Rodney Horder on 01803 310383 if you need help.
