We are anxious to add new names to the flower rota, as several people are no longer able to do the church flowers. You do not need to be an expert in flower arranging - simply able to give a little of your time to make the church look welcoming and pretty. If you think you can do this, please contact Melanie Melsom (668389).

Robin Buchanan-Dunlop published his new book on the history of Ham on 8 December 2011 in time for all those Christmas stockings!

His talk, Sex and Angst in Arcadia, was about the Bloomsbury Group in Ham and was held in the Village Hall on Friday 16 November 2012. It was a sell out evening and the audience was riveted.
