Friends and Neighbors Since 1970

Our History

Nottingham Forest Women's Club
Since 1966


To promote civic, creative and social interests for women through intellectual stimulation and interesting activities.

It all started with a garden club.

The Nottingham Forest Women's Club was organized as a Garden Club on April 26, 1966.  Hazel Landry served as the first president, followed by Gwen Beakley, Sybil McClintock and Jean Meeks.

Our little club grew.

In April of 1970, it was recognized that there was a wide diversity of interests outside the realm of gardening among the women in our neighborhood.  Subsequently, on August 21, 1970, the Nottingham Forest Women's Club was officially chartered. Under the leadership of our first president, Honey Lee, we grew from 31 members to a membership of 230.

Developing friendships and nurturing personal interests.

The Nottingham Forest Woman's Club offers its members such diversified departments as Antiques, Marathon Bridge, Garden Club, Gourmet (Evening and Daytime), Reading Circle, Civic Projects, such as supporting food for the hungry, are also a part of the program.  Departments may be changed, dropped, or new ones added, according to the wishes of the members.

Monthly general meetings are held on the 4th Tuesday of each month, September through April. A coffee hour is held, business is conducted, and well-known speakers and entertainers present the program. There is an occasional bus tour to other areas of interest, usually outside of Houston. Dues are $30.00 per year.

The primary accomplishments of this Club have been to develop new friends and interests and to promote neighborliness. Truly, we have learned to 

"Love Thy Neighbor".
