Hankelow Amenities Group

Hankelow Amenities Group came into existence in 1995

The purpose of the Hankelow Amenities Group is to run events, principally but not solely, for the benefit of the residents of Hankelow and local charities.

Amongst the events run by the Group are the Village Fete, an Autumn Supper, Carols on the Green, and free coach trips to local gardens such as Hodnet. The Group also publishes a calendar containing local scenes.

The Amenities Group normally meets at 7.30 p.m. in Hankelow Methodist Chapel schoolroom. The date of the next meeting can be found in the Dates for your diary section.

New faces and ideas are always welcome, so don't hesitate to come along if you feel you'd like to contribute to the Group.

If you'd like to help with the activities of the Group, but don't like attending meetings, please phone Val Morrey on 811930 to discuss with her how you feel you can contribute.

The Group has produced the following Annual Reports :-
