The Village Plan survey offered a prize for a meal for two at The Fox and everybody who did the survey was invited to enter a telephone number. The draw took place at The Fox and the winning number was drawn by one of the bar staff.
Myra was the lucky winner and decided to have lunch with a friend.
They had an enjoyable meal.
(The Steering Group for the Village Survey are grateful to Jason Allen, landlord of The Fox, for providing the prize).

Family Fun Day & The High Sheriff’s Bike Ride Are Coming To Barrowden
This August Bank Holiday Monday – August 28th
Summer is well and truly here and this year there is a new event to add to the busy Barrowden calendar. A family fun day is being organised by Craig Mitchell, the newly appointed High Sheriff of Rutland (and Barrowden resident) to raise funds for the Leicestershire & Rutland Air Ambulance (a service that villagers have called upon twice in recent memory).
Added interest for this event is going to be the High Sheriff’s bike ride – an 8 mile course, supervised by marshals, taking in Rutland’s beautiful Welland Valley. Entry fees will all be donated to the Air Ambulance so get training now for this healthy and enjoyable cycle ride. There will even be a free mini circuit for younger children around the village if they want to take part too! Details about entering the Cycle ride will be on village email soon.
Whilst the cycle ride starts at 11.00am, the fun gets going on Barrowden Village Green at 12.00pm. A huge variety of attractions are being organised to appeal to everyone in the family. There will be children’s races, novelty races for the young at heart, a vintage car display, Petanque (Boulles) tuition and matches, burgers & hotdogs, tea & cakes, a Tombola, face painting, flip flop fling, Pimms, plant & cake stalls, a pillory, penalty shoot-out competition and many, many more activities for everyone to have a really fun afternoon for a tremendously worthwhile cause.
Make a note on your calendar, invite your family and friends and come on down for a great afternoon’s entertainment on Barrowden Village Green.
The Village Plan Survey has now been has now been concluded and the Steering Group would like to thank all those who took part in the survey. There has been a very good response and significantly represents the views of the village. There were many comments and the essence of these will be incorporated into the final document.
All of the answers have been entered onto a database and will be analysed and the final document produced over the next few weeks. This will then be distributed to each household as well as being available on the website.
The prize draw for the two course meal for two at The Fox will take place at The Fox and this will take place in September (date will be advised on website).
A big thank to all those villagers who have completed the Village Plan Questionnaire so far. The response rate for the adult population is about 50% and for a self completed questionnaire this is an excellent result. All areas of North Luffenham Parish have been well represented and will give a good overall opinion as to the views of the Parish.
The online questionnaire can still be completed but will close on midnight Sunday 11th June.
A short summary will be posted online in the near future and in due course a full analysis and written report will be delivered to each household as well as being on the village website.
Opera in Morcott Saturday 17 June 2017 7pm for 7.30pm ‘curtain up’ Morcott Church
Lovers of light opera have a treat in store on Saturday 17 June when a group of musical friends – Amici – present Gilbert & Sullivan’s ‘Trial by Jury’ and other operatic highlights in the beautiful setting of Morcott Church.
Amici Chamber Choir has performed the length and breadth of the UK, from Manchester’s concert halls to National Trust stately homes, and on TV for Songs of Praise.
The 18-strong choir is boosted by professional soloists Nick Hardy (Opera North), Joanne Rondel and Judith Tinston who all perform under the leadership of George Robey.
The first half of the programme is Gilbert & Sullivan’s ‘Trial By Jury’, a comic opera in one act. After a relaxed interval during which drinks will be offered, the second half of the concert is a mix of operatic hits including a show-stopping ‘Nessun Dorma’ and memorable choral pieces, some of which have been arranged specially for the concert by choir members.
Tickets £12.50 from Alison Johnson on 01572 747381.
