Membership of the Ham and Petersham Association is open to anyone living in the Ham and Petersham area of the London Borough of Richmond upon Thames.

Keeping the Avenues Special: Avenues pruning and clearing day
To welcome in the New Year we are holding a day of pruning and clearing to keep the avenues special. Please come along for as much time as you can spare. Please wear gloves and boots and bring secateurs if you have them.
Coffee and biscuits supplied.
This will be part of 10 days of work in partnership with children from the German School, Grey Court School and volunteers. This work is part of a broader general maintenance programme of the recently restored Avenues and is taking place in January and February. We believe this will keep the Avenues as an area that makes Ham & Petersham truly special.
We do hope you will come and help out and support your Association to keep Ham & Petersham special!
Attention vegetable growers. As part of Richmond Literature Festival on Thursday 21st November, Naomi Schillinger will be talking about her book 'Veg Street: Grow your Own Community.' The book celebrates the fact that anyone can ‘grow your own,’ and that through vegetable growing you can meet your neighbours and grow your own community too.
