Westfield War Memorial Village Ethos

Westfield War Memorial Village is a unique, small community that offers a range of quality, affordable, rental accommodation to the Armed Forces Community, both veterans and serving. It does this in an attractive setting. It promotes a supportive community with a collective spirit based on a shared experience of service to the Crown and where individuals in need are given advice and assistance. Respect for the village’s military heritage and the service of its residents is an important part of the life of Westfield.

About

Westfield War Memorial Village is a charity that was originally established in 1919 to provide homes for disabled ex-servicemen. The provision of quality housing remains central to the charity’s philosophy, but we do a great deal more, and we embrace the wider Armed Forces Community: veterans and serving; men and women; regular and reserve; and their families. Today, there are 113 properties on the village, 91 are available for rent and 22 are privately owned.

Tours

The centenary of the First World War has raised the profile of the village considerably, and there has been an increase in demand from individuals and groups wishing to visit the site. Achieving the correct balance between public access and the rights of residents living within a private community is important. Please contact the Company Secretary through the website in the first instance.
