HUG cares about where we live!


Ham United Group (HUG) is a Community Interest Company (CIC) aiming to improve the environment and the quality of life for the people in Ham and Petersham. We support projects and groups that help make our community more sustainable. 




Due to the developments of the coronavirus, we have decided to cancel our walks and other events. We will resume when it is safe to do so
Our best wishes to you and your loved ones may you stay safe and well.
Upcoming meetings

We are currently holding a series of workshops to discover how we can better contribute to a more resilient community, generate project ideas and help us create a sustainable future for everybody. 

Our meetings are open to everyone – no previous experience or knowledge needed. Come along and join us!

Our first meeting of 2020 focussed on what sustainability means for us personally, how it comes alive in our community, and it looks like on a global level. 


26th March - How do we create a sustainable future in our community? Postponed date to be confirmed 

Meeting start at 7:30pm. Tea & biscuits from 7:15pm. At Ham library, Ham Street, TW10 7JG Richmond 

We carry on our brainstorming focussing on sustainability in our community. What are we already doing in Ham and Petersham? What could we do better? 

We will share what our present groups do; new people are always welcome to join! 


7th  May - How do we get our ideas of the ground, how can we help you to start a new project? Postponed date to be confirmed 

Meeting start at 7:30pm. Tea & biscuits from 7:15pm. At Ham library, Ham Street, TW10 7JG Richmond 

Following up on ideas that might have come up at the two previous meetings. We will be taking your thoughts to help shape HUG’s profile and generate ideas for future projects.

 We will also discuss our upcoming promotion and fundraising event at the Ham Fair.

  • Can we use some of our ideas from the Ham Parade Market? 
  • What did we learn from that event?
  • How can we inspire and empower more people to care about where we live?


Together we can make a difference. Be the change you want to see in the world!
