Maids Moreton Conservation Group came into being over ten years ago. Working with the Parish Council we are concerned with maintaining those things that are good about the village.

We have a dedicated wildlife area along Scotts Lane which has been planted with a variety of wild flowers and is part of a walk around the village. Our group initiated the lowering of some pavements in Maids Moreton to allow access for push chairs and wheel chairs. In attractive parts of the village we have placed benches which are used by all ages.

Great crested newts, a protected species, live in Maids Moreton ponds. The Conservation Group has worked to clear debris and weeds from the ponds to provide a good habitat for these endangered creatures. We organise wildlife events and we have shared our knowledge with groups such as the Brownies. Our annual litter pick is supported by all age groups.

Our members regularly add gravel to village footpaths to make them more user friendly, especially after bad weather. This has led to an increase in the number of people using and enjoying the local paths. Each year we organise footpath walks to enable newcomers to become more familiar with less well known routes.

Our newsletters are delivered free to all houses in Maids Moreton twice a year. Our publications include booklets, directories, a Parish Plan and a Village Design Statement. Currently we are looking at the history of the village and part of this project was the recent production of a DVD.

We meet six times a year on a Monday evening in the village hall.
