We're here to help build the community
Hankham is a village without a church, without a shop and without a pub. There is no centre in the village for the community to get together.
A committee formed to organise a village tea in June 2017 as part of the "Great Get Together" promoted by the Jo Cox foundation. This was a great success, with over 190 people attending, and raising over £400 for the Jo Cox foundation. This demonstrated the village could come together and from that the Hankham Village Society (HVS for short) was born.
As our constitution says, "The principal aim of the Society is to promote a sense of community and neighbourliness among the residents of Hankham." We hope to foster this in a number of ways, primarily by holding events for the residents of Hankham, by organising clubs and activities to bring residents with similar interests together and by providing an information hub through this website.
