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.
Nicki’s celebration of life will take place at St John the Baptist Church North Luffenham LE15 8JR at 1-00 pm on Tuesday May 30th and afterwards Tea/Coffee/cakes/soft drinks will be available at “The Fox” in North Luffenham
Please note that Nicki has requested that guests may, if they wish, wear a touch of pink when attending the service.
Thank you very much to all villagers who have completed the Village Plan Questionnaire (paper copy or the on line version). There has been a very good response from across the village and this will enable a valid assessment of how the residents of North Luffenham feel about the present state of the village and thoughts and ideas about future developments.
If for some reason your questionnaire was not collected, or you haven’t had time to fill it in, then completed copies can be delivered to The Fox, or completed on line. If another copy is required then they can be obtained from The Fox.
AND there is still a chance to WIN A PRIZE: a two course meal for two with a bottle of house wine at The Fox.
Closing date for questionnaires to be returned is the 22nd May.
Over the next two weeks the Village Plan Questionnaire will be delivered to each house hold and the Parish Council would be grateful if each adult in the household could complete the questionnaire, this will only take about 15 minutes. There is a much shortened questionnaire for 11 – 15 year olds as the Parish Council would also very much appreciate their opinions. One to two weeks following delivery, will be collected, or you can deliver them personally to the ‘post box’ in The Fox.
The questionnaires can also be completed online by clicking on following link:
In response to the post below a number of volunteers have come forward but it would be helpful to have some more.
There is a meeting on Monday 10th April at 7.30pm in the upstairs room at The Fox at which you would be most welcome

Perhaps better known as dog roundworm the embryonated eggs of which can be ingested by humans causing disease called toxocariasis. Young children are particularly at risk as it is picked up by ingestion of eggs from infected dog faeces. It is fortunately rare but rare things do happen. Dog mess is not only unpleasant but a potential source of an unpleasant infection.
This item is being reposted as another incident of dog fouling on The Oval and also on a street in the village was reported to the Parish Council. In the incident on The Oval the owner of the dog was challenged but refused to clean up. The vast majority of dog owners conscientiously clean up after their dogs and please continue to be vigilant when walking your dog. If users of The Oval see an infringement please continue to challenge and point out that there are bins provided.
