Spring village walk cropped

Village Walk, spring 2018 – remember the sunshine?

CANCELLED: With apologies for  any disappointment but the walk has been cancelled due to the bad weather and dangerous conditions. 

The Footpath Project is organising the next Village Walk on Sunday 14th October.  The arrangements follow the successful format of previous village walks, but with new routes that will be revealed on the day.

This will be the fourth of these social walks, which have proved to be a great way to get to know your neighbours while appreciating the beautiful countryside around our village.  Newcomers will be made very welcome by the regular walkers.

There will be the usual choice of a longer walk (about 5 miles or so) and an easier short walk (around 2 miles on flatter ground). Continue reading

Fete Extra!

BarbequeUPDATE: 29th August

Many thank to everyone who turned out in the rain, and on Monday to help finish off the beer and food!  The hall benefits from the profits, as do the community groups, local enterprises and good causes that had their own stalls.  The hall committee really appreciate the support of the village, and it just proves what a great community we have here on The Narth!

26th August

Because of the poor weather, and despite a really good turnout at the fete regardless, we are opening the bar and lunch counter again Monday lunch time, from 12.30pm.  We’ll have burgers, veggie curry and salads as well as the usual bar offerings, so come along and join us in the (hopefully) dry weather!  (But the marquees are still up, just in case).
