Gnomes Anonymous
British organization that developed from a reorganization
of the Gnome Club of Great Britain and Gnomes International,
both founded in 1978 by Ann Atkin at the Old Rectory, West
Putford, Devon.
In 1983 the Gnome Reserve was moved to Surrey under the
administration of Alex Adams, ‘‘gnome-in-chief.’’ The purpose
of Gnomes International was to ‘‘unite gnomes and their
human keepers,’’ and membership was open to people of all
ages interested in gnomes. The organization offered children’s
services, conducted research, and maintained a speakers’ bureau.
It published Gnome News three times a year. Last known
address Alex Adams, Gnome Reserve, 224 Kingston Rd., New
Malden, Surrey, KT3 3UH, England.
