Acton Aid was formed over 40 years ago when a group of men living in Iron Acton decided to set up an informal organisation to organise events in Iron Acton for the benefit of local parishioners with surplus funds helping good causes in the local community. They also offered their services free of charge to projects that would enhance village life. This also gave them the opportunity to meet regularly in the Lamb Inn to plan and to ensure that the beer remained up to standard!
Little has changed other than Acton Aid now has over 40 members and the events organised have a very loyal following and have become larger and generate significant funds for good causes and charities. We still have a lot of fun and are very proud about the positive assistance we have made and the pleasure we have provided.
