Damerham and District Horticultural Society
The Society's membership is drawn primarily from Damerham, Rockbourne, Whitsbury, Sandleheath and Martin although anyone is welcome.
We have about 200 members, most of whom have a general interest in gardens and gardening; some have wide experience and knowledge of plants and gardening whilst others are beginners looking to learn or simply enjoy the company.
We hold monthly events including talks, practical workshops, shows, visits, a plant sale and a summer party usually held in a member's garden. These are listed in our membership card with details on our website and in the quarterly newsletter.
Within the society there are some members who are happy to provide individual, informal advice on specific or general gardening topics.
Annual Membership costs £5.00 per person or £8.00 per couple.
Members are entitled to free entry to shows, up to 50% discount off Suttons Seeds, plus free entry to most of the society's events. Admission to talks cost £3.00 per person for non members.
If you are interested in joining please go to their website www.ddhs.co.uk or a membership application form is available from the membership secretary, Carolyn Andrews 01725 518802

Tea And Chat
Damerham “Tea and Chat” was started in 1997 because we felt that there were a number of fairly house-bound people in the village who found it difficult to get out and about, or even to meet up with their friends from the other end of the village.
We arrange social meetings, activities and outings for the less mobile and their friends.
We meet on the first Wednesday of the month, at 2:15 p.m. in the Village Hall (except our Christmas Lunch is usually earlier). We have interesting people to chat to us, or we just chat – and always a “cuppa”, of course! Contact Cherry Brittan 01725 518538
Started in October 2011, to provide a meeting place for Village people, with refreshments at ‘not for profit’ rates. Increasingly, visitors from outside the village are being welcomed. Although we operate as ‘not for profit’ we do make a small profit each week, so each month, we draw the name of one of our volunteers out of the a hat, and this person nominates charity for a donation.
Everyone is welcome, just by coming this adds something to the village. We meet on Wednesday mornings between 10.30 am and midday.
Do come along and see us. Contact: Mike Jerrard email@example.com
Walks In Damerham
There is a wonderful network of footpaths and bridleways in Damerham.
We have a Footpaths Officer who keeps a copy of the Hampshire County Council’s definitive map of the footpaths and bridleways in the parish. If anybody has a query about where a particular right of way goes then the Footpaths Officer is able to help by advising on the correct route. If you find a difficulty or obstruction on a footpath then the Footpath Officer will contact the land owner or the County Council’s countryside service and ask for the obstruction to be removed.
If you would like to take part in an organised walk then the Footpaths Officer can put you in touch with the Ringwood and Fordingbridge Footpath Society.
If you would like to help maintain rights of way in the parish then the Footpaths Officer will be delighted to hear from you.
The Footpaths Officer has prepared some village walks, click on the links for details.
