Christmas Meal - with "WhoDunnit" Murder Mystery December 2017

A great evening was had by all at our annual Christmas meal this year flavoured by a fancy dress WhoDunnit Murder Mystery. Many clues later (and a few of us were clueless) and we discovered that the man who did the dirty deed was none other than ... Lord Gardiner himself !

Many thanks to Lisa for her hard work in organising the Mystery and to the staff at The Elm Tree for a wonderful meal ... and for putting up with us !

GREAT NEWS ! ... Funding boost for Hanham Community Centre Tennis Club - completed in 2022

Hanham Community Centre (HCC) is celebrating a £14,995.00 funding boost from SUEZ Communities Trust for the Hanham Tennis Club Court Upgrade Project.

Hanham Tennis Club based at Abbot’s Road Sports Ground is part of Hanham Community Centre. Funding will allow the upgrade of two tennis courts to include renovation and repainting plus replacement of the 30 year old floodlights. New LED lights will provide better illumination and will be more efficient allowing play to continue during the winter months. The upgraded electrics will also provide reliable power to the tennis club hut. The court refurbishment to improve safety and playability.

Rob James, Chairman of the Community Centre’s Tennis Club said “The funding allows us to keep the tennis club playing surface in excellent condition as well as improve the lighting for evening play - and lowering our energy bills in the process, which is good for the environment. We are incredibly grateful that SUEZ Communities Trust has made this possible” 

Marek Gordon, Chairman of SUEZ Communities Trust added “SUEZ Communities Trust provides funding awards through the Landfill Communities Fund. We were delighted to be able to offer funding to Hanham Community Centre (HCC).”
