Welcome to the website of Loose Amenities Association. The area lies to the south of Maidstone, Kent. At its heart is the picturesque Loose village, pictured above.
The Association owns 21 acres of the Loose valley and is run by volunteers to preserve and care for the beautiful and unique environment of Loose village and the Loose Valley Conservation Area. To fund this work we organise events throughout the year. Visit our Events page to see what's happening in 2014/2015.
We are a UK registered charity and our charity number is 215701.
'Exploring Loose Village' gives a fascinating insight into the history of the village and contains many charming illustrations.
This latest edition has been revised with the help of the Loose Area History Society and reflects the changes that have taken place since it was first published in 1978. It includes new illustrations by local artist Catherine Collett and an updated walking trail. The 46 page A5 booklet costs £3.50 plus £1.20 post and packing.

We have received lots of phone calls and emails about the new fencing in the valley. We had arranged to have some laminated information sheets put up before the fencers arrived, but unfortunately this wasn't done in time, which left regular walkers in the dark. Please accept our apologies for this.
The fencing has been installed to protect the wild flowers on the wooded bank which otherwise would be eaten by our flock of Hebridean sheep.
Gates have been installed so that the area is still accessible for walkers and dogs, although the stile which has been installed is too high and will be replaced with a kissing gate as soon as possible. Please bear with us; LAA is run by volunteers who have many other calls on their time but the access issues will be sorted out as soon as possible.
