CLUBS & GROUPS
The Art Group meet in a friendly atmosphere every Tuesday afternoon in the Village Hall. The artists use a variety of media to produce their paintings, which are to a high standard.
The Group welcomes new members as and when vacancies occur. It is desirable that people joining have had some previous painting experience as no formal tuition is available during our sessions.
Members of Baginton Art Group hold an Annual Exhibition in Baginton Village Hall in November, where original works by this group of local artists are on display and most pictures are available for purchase.
Baginton Events is a small group of villagers who meet regularly to plan, organise and fundraise events for our village. We receive no funding from the local council or any public body and we are heavily reliant on volunteers to help at our events. We would be very pleased to hear from anybody who is willing to help, just email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Baginton Gardeners was formed in late 2011 as a response to a wish expressed by villagers in the Parish Plan Survey. Baginton Gardeners is open to anyone in the village and surrounding areas. Some events will be for members only while others will be open to visitors as well. The aim of the group as expressed in the Constitution is “the encouragement and enjoyment of horticulture by such means as the committee may determine and to advise on horticultural matters.” To this end the Committee arrange a varied programme of meetings, visits and activities of interest to all gardeners. These can be found on the Events page.

The Lucy Price Relief in Need Charity was initially set up by Lucy Price in 1814 to fund and run the village school; in 1982 the Charity Commissioners restructured the trust into its current structure.
The trust was set up to support Baginton children and young persons up to the age of 25, who are “in need”.
