The parish of Alveston is a busy and vibrant place of about 7,000 people. The ageing population means that there are a number of care homes in the parish. Alveston Leys is one example; another is Margaret Court in Tiddington which is nearing completion.

The Tiddington Community Centre has recently been refurbished and is now a very busy centre for the community. In Alveston village the 170 year old church now requires significant maintenance.  A project is under way to raise £170,000-£250,000 for the essential repairs.
