Ham Amenities Group


 
 
The Ham Amenities Group is a non-political group, formed in 1979 to preserve, as far as possible, our natural heritage, to improve services and to provide the opportunity of social contact by arranging various activities. Much of its income, including all profit from Ham Fair, which we founded in 1983 and organise annually, is given to local charities and good causes and has amounted over the past few years to several thousand pounds.

Aims and Objectives

  1. To promote preservation of our area and a high standard of cleanliness and tidiness. We do this through contact with the relevant departments of Richmond Borough Council, and our Ward Councillors. Particular areas of interest are
    1. Keeping the Common and riverside beautiful, with a practical balance between open grassland, trees, flowers, ponds and car parks.
    2. Monitoring building developments and other Council planning decisions, supporting those in keeping with the environment and opposing those detrimental.
    3. To maintain the Gate House Garden (close to the Cassel Hospital) which was originally purchased and set up by our Group.
