Scarning Clubs

Home  Menu


Founded in 2000, the Scarning Art Group evolved into the Scarning Art Club in 2009 with the aim of bringing together people, in friendship, who love art and to provide an opportunity for every member to recognise and develop their individual talents.

Our meetings are varied and include workshops covering a wide range of mediums and subjects; field trips in the summer to different locations; demonstrations, advice and critiques from several invited professional artists and a wealth of knowledge from friendly club members who are willing to help. The Club has been able to mount several well-attended successful exhibitions over the years.

New members are always welcome; beginners and experienced artists alike; just walk in and say hello. It is a great way to meet new friends with similar interests and we look forward to meeting you between 9am and 12.00 noon on Thursday mornings in Scarning Village Hall.

The village's allotments are run by the Scarning Fuel Allotment charity and cost from 6 per annum. Unfortunately there are currently no plots available. For more information or to be put on the waiting list, please contact Tim Abel 851116 (


The club was formed over sixty years ago. At present we have 25 members and play regularly in the Dereham and District League and the Elmham and District League. We also have club competitions. After the Annual General Meeting in January a fixtures list will be decided. The membership subscription is 10 per season. We play on the Bowling Green behind the village hall.

We had a very nice pavilion for the bowls club adjacent to that for the football and tennis building on the playing field. Sadly both of these were burned down in 2008. All that remained were the concrete foundations until the new pavilion was completed in July 2009.
