Bringing people together

We have 45 clubs under our umbrella. We meet in a Grade II listed building with views to the Isle of Wight.

We sing, dance, play cards, petanque, table tennis, we have art and crafts and much more. We are run by volunteers and we would welcome you to our community.

As you may recall, we sadly lost our joint President Betty Mumford last year. Having spoken to her husband Tony, he is very willing to continue his role as President until our next AGM. Thank you Tony.


During the past decade, I have thoroughly enjoyed being part of the volunteer team who organise and run the Highcliffe Community Association. There are so many opportunities to participate in activities and social events, and at the same time give something back by offering our time and enthusiasm to keep the wheels turning. We have discovered that whatever we put in, the more joy and satisfaction we get out.

There have been so many updates and improvements recently that it is sometimes difficult to keep up with it all, but it is wonderful to be a part of such a great organisation.

At present time there are 45 activity groups, each self-supporting within the overall organisation, which is administered by an executive team of volunteers and working team made up of members. It is a privilege to be part of the HCA which is truly “an independent organisation run voluntarily by members for members and financially self-supporting”.

Great strides have been made over past years to bring HCA up to date. I am confident that the future will continue to give all that Greystones has to offer – with more and ‘in the pipeline’.

Original new social events are being introduced all the time, and are proving very popular. Also, the fresh and energised new membership brings with it many talents which may well set up additional activities. Who knows what the future holds, but whatever it is we can be sure that it will continue to be underpinned by the constant goodwill, friendship, and support which makes Highcliffe Community Association, so very special to so many people. It does indeed BRING LOCAL PEOPLE TOGETHER.

Please come along and sample the warm welcome and facilities offered.

You’ll love it …… really !
