If anyone has lost a grey/ white cat it has been seen between north Luffenham &south along glebe rd area. No more information available as info passed on by a visitor.
Unfortunately just had this message passed to us on Facebook ☹️ “Sadly we have just found a dead cat on Glebe Road. Poss hit by a car. Mostly grey with tortoiseshell patches and white neck & white paws. ”
Hi , has anyone found a pair of glasses by free vegetable box on Pinfold lane near Geoff Sewell close , thanks x
Very sadly a cat has been hit in front of my house no16. Edith Weston Road. Kitty has passed. She has a white tummy and grey and black markings on her back. We are trying to find her owners. I am popping her in a box. God rest her soul. Nicky 07739589810
Just found a chunky silver ring in the field at the bottom of Moor Lane (on the footpath). Please get in touch if you think it’s yours – 07902 506900
I live in the village and we are changing over to Gas, so I have around 1200 litres (can be divided into a smaller quantity for more than one delivery if less is required) of kerosene oil which I can arrange a tanker to deliver but only in the village (North Luffenham).
I will be doing the oil cheaper than the current price which is over a £1 a litre so happy to discuss a price.

Hi Just returned from holiday and found I seem to be missing my grey recycling bin If anyone has seen it looking lost and lonely Could they let me know
Di W 6 the jetties
Yes that seems an excellent suggestion, much better than having a town foisted on us by RDC,
Could also plant a ‘forest’ on the airfield, which would help soak up CO2 from the atmosphere and become a forest park eventually, complementing Rutland Water
We have been thinking about renewable energy and the possible use of North Luffenham airfield as a wind and solar site. We have been attending parish council meetings to open a dialogue along these lines. We would be interested in the thoughts of the North Luffenham residents and your feedback which you can post on the wall.
Robert Purves and Tony Smith
We think this would be great idea and great use of a brownfield site. Wouldn’t it be great to be the first county in the uk to be powered by solar and wind.
I have a couple of large boxes of quality books … mostly hardbacks and referencey hobby type I think earmarked for charity but it occurred to me that they may be of use to the community centre or indeed anyone else who wants them. Unfortunately I can’t lift the boxes as my back is playing up so wonder if anyone would come and collect if they could be of use… I’m in Glebe Road
Can anyone help please?
We have a delivery of logs coming on Wednesday 15th December on a large pallet. Unfortunately I have injured my back and am not allowed to bend or pick things up so I can’t unload and stack the logs. We were wondering if anyone would be able to help Sue, my wife, to unload and stack the logs. We would be very willing to pay someone for a couple of hours work just to help us out.
If you are able to help please either reply or give me a call or text on 07774456788.
Very many thanks
Seeking help please! We have a pallet of logs being delivered on Wednesday (15th). Simon has damaged his back and can’t lift and so we are keen to pay a fit person to help me move and stack them. We live in Glebe Road. Thank you. Sue Browning, 07534 885747
Hi , did anyone find a camping chair cover on the oval after bonfire night ? Left there by accident!! Navy blue . Thanks
Help! We have been let down by the person who delivered a load of gravel for our drive (advertised in parish mag). He agreed to spread the gravel but has just dumped it, and now doesn’t answer our calls. Would a fit young person(s) like to earn some money and help us out of a predicament? Thank you!
Well done to the PCC for letting the cow parsley flourish on the Oval. It has been looking spectacular – and is a great benefit for wildlife. Now if we could only encourage people not to cut hedges during the bird nesting season…..
The RSPB recommend not cutting hedges between March and the end of August. It is also an offence, under the Wildlife Act, to damage or destroy nests. The regular sound of petrol hedge trimmers over the last couple of weeks has been very upsetting.
Sorry that should read PC not PCC!
On our dog walk on the airfield this morning I found a pair of i think ladies glasses. If they are yours please txt or call 07765944983.
I was wondering if anyone knows when we can walk dogs on the airfield. I’m a bit confused as I thought if the red flag is flying they were exercising and not to go on there but today the flag was flying and people were hang gliding and some were flying small planes. Do we now have permission to go at specific times or what. It just seems at the moment the flag is up all week regardless of any activity going on. There have been announcements before saying when we can use it but haven’t seen anything lately.
Please can North Luffenham friends keep an eye out for Albert- small brown dog. I have sent a photo to the fb page so hopefully will be posted soon. He has ran off this morning. Please call Sherry on 01780592195 if you see him.
Patients at Empingham surgery might like to know that Stamford Hospital doesn’t do blood tests on Wednesdays and Fridays. Apparently even the surgery didn’t know!
So here we go again, stupid people letting fireworks near Ancaster Way, a totally useless activity with no consideration for the wildlife and pets, so glad I am leaving this village!
LOST. Tan dog with lead attached to blue harness. His name is Rubble and he is very nervous. If seen please phone 07765944983. He went missing this morning at the top of oval close. He may be stuck somewhere with his lead. Do not chase him just call and I will be there. Thankyou. Kathy.
Rubble has now been found. Thank you everyone.
Has anyone seen a bike cover and bbq cover. Both are grey. Bike cover is plain and bbq cover is Webber. Lost in the winds sometime in the past two days from Geoff Sewell Close. Thanks
Hi! I was wondering whether anyone can recommend a good, local home-cleaning service? Thanks so much!
Hi. I was wondering whether anyone can recommend a local home cleaning service? With many thanks, Laura
I’m trying to find out who owns a large ginger tom cat. His lower canine tooth sticks out and he hasn’t been neutered. If this sounds familiar please give me a call. He’s trying to move into my shed!
Fiona Wheatley 01780 721214
I’ve got a ginger with a funny bottom tooth, but he’s certainly neutered and not very big….?
I have some UCC uniform of anyone would like it.
Blazers size 2x 29 and a 30
PE T-shirt smallest size I think
2x rugby shirts 30/32 inches
I’ve just found a pair of brown (reading?) glasses on the Oval, southwest corner near the bench. Email email@example.com and I’ll bring them round to you
Mowing the Oval (again)
Whoever mows the oval needs to slow down. The ride-on mower being used is driving far too fast – there are people and animals using the space who would be seriously injured in a collision. The oval seems to have been mowed weekly for the last 4 months and often at this crazy speed.
please see this urgently… this date had been brought forward by two weeks with the excuse of Covid 19!!! Friday is the deadline for SCI consultation. Changes proposed by RCC will signicantly impact the way we, the public, can respond to Local Planning and we need to make our views heard.
Completed our response yesterday. It only takes a few minutes of your time & the future of. Rutland could depend on the outcome.
Thought you might be interested and can pass this around, re barracks development

The verges on the Oval are being decimated yet again! How sad that they seem to need doing so often … And now by two men on two shiny red mowers…
Anybody know if there is any change in what is most needed for the Foodbank or the requirements still the same.? Thanks.
Thankyou for your enquiry. The requirements for the foodbank remain the same.
Many thanks for al the donations.
Found a pair of specs on Edith Weston Road dog walking field..call Phil 07936 372899
Very sad to see the cow parsley on the Oval cut down in its prime yet again, It’s a valuable source of habitat and food for dozens of insects and bees. Not everything has to be neat and tidy!
Exactly – ‘neat and tidy’ belies nature! If it was put to local vote, after of course educating as to why it exists every Spring, then the majority would surely put a stop to the practice? Maybe the ‘gardener’ should be thrown some ‘egg on his face’
Anyone have a newspaper delivered in the village?
Yes my Mum has hers delivered from Mercury News, Uppingham
Have just done an online order for frozen fish, direct from Grimsby. IshFish
Black Motorola mobile phone between Manor Farm on Lyndon Road and the gate into Oval on Church Road . . . Saturday 22/2/20
Thank you. FOUND yesterday, Monday.
Can anyone suggest walks with small dogs where one can let them off lead … Apart from the Oval? It seems woodland walk now bound by sheep where the fence although electrified will show my small dogs through. The footpath from church now has horses and the footpath in the field next door.. Glebe road… Is impassable on winter due to mud and in summer due to crops or overgrowth. That really leaves only the Oval or the churchyard. Anyone got any ideas please?
Will the person who let off a bird scarer in the Ancaster Way area last night at about 5pm please be aware that you terrified a 94 year old woman who thought there was an explosion in her house. Her neighbour was also upset. Not to mention the numerous cats and dogs in the vicinity. While I understand that such a large colony of starlings is not ideal in a built up area, maybe you should be talking to the estate managers about the laurel bushes rather than taking the matter into your own hands. Meanwhile many of us enjoy watching this miracle of nature and are happy to wash or cover our cars when required!
Please give a thought to pets if you are planning to let fireworks off this holiday.
Found an inhaler on the oval ..marked Charlie Turley …call on 07936 372899 Phil
Two keys on a key ring found on the oval near the zip wire. If they are yours please call me on 07765944983.
Hello All. If anybody is putting any spring Bulbs in the green bin I would be grateful for them. Grape hyacinths, daffs, tulips etc anything to cheer a small space up. Thank you. Kathy.
Found on oval ,keyring with Peugeot car key . Call Phil on 07936 372899
Just received a very convincing call from someone saying they are from Rutland Council and looking to give a re-payment back on over charged council taxed. It’s a con and a scam. I asked to ring him back and he hung up. So beware – obviously targeting Rutland Villages. Mike.
Set of keys found on Pilton road near The Settings – call 07860926332
A massive thank you to the organisers of yet another fantastic village Bonfire and Firework event. It is one of the annual events which makes the village a great place to live.
Hello… I’ve lost my car key from my key ring, and I think it must be :
On the Oval; between Glebe road and the Oval; between the Oval and the churchyard or along Edith Weston road, cutting through the cut to John Sewell close and round back to the road
OOPS! I meant to say, if you find it could you please post here, thank you. It’s just a simple key with no remote or anything so may well be trodden in by now. I have managed to find the spare since posting this but it’s bent so I need to get another cut … but I’d like to find this one if it’s around.
I’m sorry all but I am going to have a bit of a rant. Its been a while since I walked my dogs on the pathway through the woodland walkway. I thought it would be somewhere where I could take my toddler great granddaughter along with my dogs for a stroll. Well I am disgusted at the amount of dog poo I saw and even more disgusted at the owners for not picking it up. It’s not somewhere for children to walk safely. Why oh why can’t the dog owners be more responsible. We have lovely walks around us please don’t spoil them or get them closed. Pick up after your dog. Rant over.
Door key found at the top of Butt Lane on Tuesday evening 24th July. Brass coloured key with an orange tag .The key was left at the Fox pub.
I urge everyone to watch this:
It puts into prospective the scale of the proposed St. Georges Barracks development
A set of house keys found between the church and the walk down to the river. contact 07825718292
The Royal Mail van does not appear to have turned up today (Friday 19th May). Have they given up through lack of demand? We’ve used it four or five times since it started but it hasn’t generally been too well supported, according to the driver. Has the timing on Stamford market day got anything to do with it? Shame…I’ve now got to go to Edith Weston to post a parcel.
Hi Mike, I couldn’t find your email address but hope this message reaches you! My email is firstname.lastname@example.org (address 6 Glebe Road) and I would like a national allotment scheme catalogue if I’m not too late? Thanks, Claire
Flowery plastic mac (girl 6 – 8 yrs old) may have been left at playground Sunday evening. If anyone finds it please contact me at email@example.com and I will pick it up at the weekend.
Is anyone else having intermittent internet connection issues in the village?
Found- A pair of metal framed glasses found in the grass at the church yard.
Looking for someone to give me some private tuition in using Photoshop and InDesign. Anybody in the village? Mike Barnes. 0780 3617859.
Mike, did you find someone? I realise this is a long time ago now but just wondering?
Hi I live in the village and know a recently retired semi professional photograpghy who does one to one Photoshop coaching at all levels who is very good and has years of experience if you are still interested . He lives in Pb and is a regular contributor to one of the best camera clubs in the area-Deepings.
Urgent!! Can anyone help me out with a few guest beds for 2 nights 27 & 28th Dec. I need at least 2 for adults so ideally not air beds. Thank you for reading! Please call/ text me, Jo on 07966 916066.
Hi – does anyone know if there is a carol service at St John’s North Luffenham this year? My grandparents live in the village so we’d love to come over and take them for a festive outing. thanks
There certainly is and we hope that you can join us. Carols to Candlelight at 4pm on Sunday 18th December followed by Drinks and mince pies. Everyone is most welcome. Christmas Day Communion will be held on 25th at 9.30am
St Mary & St John Primary School are holding a Santa Fun Run and Christmas Fete on Saturday 10th December 1-3pm. The fun run starts and finishes at the school with a small entry fee. Runners welcome to register on the day. The fete will include Father Christmas, Used toys and books stall, a tombola, cake stall, a fabulous raffle of several lovely hampers (tickets available from the school office or available on the day) a Christmassy café serving mulled wine and mince pies and lots of festive games and fun. Do come along, we would love to see you.

Please drop off any donations to the school office before Friday Dec 9th. Any help greatly appreciated. Thank you so much.
A big “thank you” to the Parish Council and helpers for making the Bonfire Night Celebrations such an enjoyable evening. The display was amazing and it looked like everyone had an enjoyable evening. What a great place to live North Luffenham is.
Black Wheelie bin missing – Nov 5th 2016
Our black dust bin went missing last night after the fireworks! If you should see it in the village or find yourselves with an extra one this morning, please contact Julie on 07866 741022
Apologies – phone no for missing black wheelie bin is Julie 07866 741022
I want to say THANKYOU to whoever maintains the footpaths around NL. I really appreciate the recent work to keep the Moor Lane -> village cut through and stiles passable. Also the tidy up of the path way down to the stream under Moor Bridge. I can see it is alot of work and I really appreciate it 🙂
Hi Olwen – I am really pleased our work makes a difference. When I surveyed the path I noticed that the trees had become overgrown so I contact the land owner and asked them to cut it back which they did immediately. If you ever come across an issue on a right of way please let me know and I can investigate the problem.
I don’t believe this! As the new pathway has finally been finished between rosewood and Edith Weston road I thought I would plant a few shrubs against my fence. After coming back from walking my dogs I saw one of the big shrubs was missing, someone had obviously taken a liking to it for there garden. I am a keen gardener and like to see flowers and bushes enhancing our village so if the person who took a fancy to my plant reads this would you please return it. I have planted on my boundary so this is not public land.
Do we have any photos of the village day one the gallery page?
Can I just give a big thanks to Paul and all the Parish Councillors and volunteers for a great day on Saturday. It took a lot or work, sweat and tears and it is much appreciated. Well Done.
what is the intention with the park / swings & childrens play area at North Luffenham? Apparently the PC have been sending out consultations to ‘certain residents’ it is now in a very poor condition! it really lets the whole village down, i understand the PC have a sizeable grant / pot of money to spend on it, and have done for some time!!
Please see here for contacting the working group about the playground review https://northluffenham.com/2016/02/14/parish-council-playground-review/ it was also included in the recent annual parish meeting, the slides are here: https://northluffenham.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/04/Annual-Parish-Meeting-16.pdf
Ok thanks. Perhaps a review of how you promote these things is a good idea? I wonder how many responses have been recieved to date? We had no idea, and there is nothing obvious on any of the links on the website. I would go so far as to suggest for a true representation of village opinion it needs to be opened up to the wider village community in a different format.
There will be a big push later this year (probably launched on Village Day on 11th June) to formally gather everyone in the villages views on how North Luffenham could be improved, what peoples issues are etc – the Playground will be covered in this activity to make sure everyone has a say and we can ensure we have as much of a consensus as possible. There will be a paper questionnaire for each house, and an online survey on the website
Hi Alex, have you seen the website posting about the Village Plan meeting on Monday Nov 7th? – thought this might interest you
Come and join Chater Community Choir for carol singing at The Fox tonight (Christmas Eve) at 7:30pm
interesting one Pete, but how do all other firework displays manage? Presumably they all have similar potential issues. perhaps a launch from the warren would work better? NL fireworks are known well in the Rutland area, seems a shame to frankly kill what has been a successful bonfire night for as long as I can remember.
no rockets at the bonfire display 2015!?!, boo to you PC! bar better be well stock with alcohol….
Hi, feedback from the survey we carried out was pretty clear that rockets caused quite a few potential problems over the years with spent rockets dropping close to cars etc, and so unfortunately we have had to review their use in the display
The Juniors start their summer cricket coaching this evening on the oval at 6pm. The tuck shop will be open as will the kitchen for tea, coffee & a chat! Our first Sunday morning game is 31st May v Peterborough. We’d love to have your support again this summer, I know the children really enjoy seeing you cheering them on. More comments to follow as the season progresses!
Hello everyone, recently moved into the village with my fiancée Lucy, loving being here so far, got some super neighbours
Good to hear. We moved in 3 years ago and were also made very welcome. My advice is to get involved, if possible, with the various activities.
Anyone watching the Eclipse?
Yes. Certainly went darker and cooler.
Do you have any space on your allotment for me to grow dahlia’s for my daughter’s wedding this coming August. My garden is rather small. Dahlias are said to be excellent companions to vegetables as the roots deter a variety of pests
Hilary, not many subscribed to the village wall yet, so I would suggest submitting a local Ad as well which will reach the subscribers to posts: https://northluffenham.com/local-ads/#submission-form
Hi Hilary, you can grow them at our house, if you are still looking – we are are on church st and have lots of space for garden. email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
There doesn’t seem to have been a flood of comments and am I alone in thinking that The Fox has lived up to expectations. A welcome boost to village life in North Luffenham.
Is this the same fund that Rose Close has input to?
I don’t think it is Pete but will find out for sure. Tim
Yes, it is! (And testing)
Friday 6th March at 6pm: see you there (along, I imagine, with half the village.
So when is the pub opening then….
