Hoxne Garden and Social Club
Hoxne Garden and Social Club offers a monthly get together at The Village Hall for members and guests to listen to an invited speaker on a variety of subjects, not just to do with gardening. We meet on the third Thursday of every month normally. There is no age range, so you don’t have to be retired before joining. Membership is currently £5 per year and then members pay £2 at each meeting. (For guests is £3). So far this summer we have had speakers talking about ‘Religious Guilds of Lavenham’, ‘Foul Murders of East Anglia’, and ‘How to cultivate Sweet Peas’. Our Autumn programme will include a talk on the work of ‘The British Hen Welfare Trust’, ‘Digging for Britain in the second world war’ hopefully with some ration book food to try, and in November hopefully a speak from one of our local vineyards, who might even being some samples for us to try. In the new year we have booked Johnnie Ling to talk about ‘The Mechanical Music Museum’. So, as you can see, we do cover a variety of topics in our talks. If you fancy joining us, either just turn up on the third Thursday of the month of contact us: Julie Coop mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org

Please note this request from the chairman of the group:
Hoxne’s History – Artefacts and Displays in St Peter and St Paul Church
To commemorate the 1150th anniversary of St Edmunds martyrdom plans are being drawn up for the establishment of the St Edmund Chapel in the North Aisle of the Church.
In order to facilitate construction of the Chapel and the restoration of the screen which was removed some years ago it will be necessary to temporarily take down and store the exhibits currently located in the North Aisle.
This provides us with a unique opportunity to present our local history as depicted by these exhibits in a better and more modern way.
The Hoxne History Group together with the Parochial Church Council are working to establish ownership of the artefacts and displays and refresh and update these hopefully with the assistance and permission of the owners.
Some work has already been undertaken to identify and catalogue everything currently on display, but we do require help particularly to add new material where appropriate, and more importantly, to maintain what we already have in good condition for future generations.
As we are uncertain about the ownership and origin of some of the exhibits, we are most anxious to hear from anyone who may have information that will help us in this regard. Furthermore, if you are someone who cares about our heritage and would be willing to help with this important ongoing work we shall be very pleased to hear from you.

The Hoxon Hundred
The Hoxon Hundred are a Morris dancing side from the Norfolk/Suffolk border of East Anglia. We are a side with a significant repertoire including Cotswold, North West Morris, Garland, Rapper Sword and Step dances. Our membership includes people with a range of ages from pre-teens to the somewhat more mature. We strive to give a traditional feel to our performance, drawing on the many traditions that make up the Morris. During May through to July, on Wednesday nights, we generally dance at a local pub within a 10 mile radius of our home base, the Suffolk village of Hoxne. From September we hibernate Hoxne Village Hall where we practice for the next season. Visitors or those who fancy joining us are welcome to call in on our Wednesday evening sessions 7.30pm – 10.00pm
