Local Groups

A number of groups meet on a regular basis. For more details, please visit their web site or contact the person shown below.

  • Empingham Cricket & Social Club

  • St Peter's Church

  • Empingham Men's Shed

    The "Men's Shed" meet monthly in the White Horse for informal talks, discussions and to plan visits - over a pint (or a coffee).

    "The Shed" is open to all men regardless of age, background or ability, although it is primarily aimed at those who have retired or are winding down their careers. It provides an opportunity to share our knowledge, interests and stories with others, to apply these to the benefit of the village community and in doing so to develop new friendships.

    The Men's Shed helps keep its members physically, mentally and socially active, and to make Empingham a special community.

    New members are always welcome. There are no membership fees and no agendas or minutes. Just come along - we usually meet at 7.30 on the last Wednesday of the month. Check first with Bob Willars .
  • Empingham Allotment Association

    Empingham Allotment Association is a thriving group of villagers benefitting from the pleasure of growing vegetables, fruit and flowers. We aim to enjoy ourselves by gardening on our own plots and by taking part in communal activities. We generally have a Summer Social and an Autumn Barbecue. We join in other local activities such as the Summer Show, the Fete, Open Gardens and a monthly quiz. If you would like a plot or more information please contact our chairman, Stephen St Clair-Thompson, on 01780 460337 or our secretary, Emma Rawlings, .

  • Girl's Night Out

    The Girl's Night Out meet on a regular basis. They have also organised a program of walks in the local area, which is open to all.

    We are hoping to continue the summer walks programme in 2020. Walks are on Tuesdays and start at 2 pm from outside the White Horse.

  • Empingham Garden Club

    The Garden Club was formed in January 2006. Since then the club has gone from strength to strength. We now have a total of over 60 members and meet monthly at the Cricket Club. Membership costs just £6 per year - great value for money!

    We host a wide variety of speakers, and cover topics from all branches of horticulture. Meetings are held in the Empingham Cricket & Social Club on Exton Road.

    Display at Flower ShowFor some of our members, the highlight of the year is our Annual Show. This allows us to show not only our horticultural expertise, but also our talents in crafts, flower arranging and cookery. We also hold an annual Plant Sale at the beginning of May, where great bargains are to be had.

    We are a very friendly club and visitors are always welcome to join us at our meetings.
