A few words from the Chairman


Membership of Sparkenhoe is free to people under the age of 18 or in full time education. All guests are charged £5 to attend a lecture.

If you would like to get more involved with the running of Sparkenhoe then please do get in touch with me. We are keen to encourage more people to join the committee. It is not time consuming and it is extremely rewarding to be involved with the running of a group which brings so much pleasure to our members.  

If you are involved in an arts related activity locally then please do get in touch to see whether Sparkenhoe can help you, either with funding or just publicity. In turn, you may be able to help us spread the word about The Arts Society Sparkenhoe!

Our drive for new members is going well with a small number of new members either joining or rejoining and I welcome those new members to the Society.

As part of our recruitment plans we have prepared a small 'flyer' that is currently being distributed around the community, and beyond, by the Committee. I would welcome any help members could give in this drive, by spreading the word using this flyer. It will be available at the sign in desk on the next lecture evening.

The next lecture is our Festive Christmas Evening that will start a little earlier at 7pm. Please come along and add to this festive time of the year. If you bring along a few mince pies they would be most welcome.  

May I take this opportunity of thanking my Committee for all their hard work this year and wishing them, and all members of The Arts Society Sparkenhoe a very Happy Christmas and a Healthy and Happy New Year.
