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.
