Bellingdon and Asheridge Village Hall AGM
This is YOUR opportunity to have your say about how the village hall is run, plus find out where its money is spent, what the committee’s plans are for the future and to meet the volunteers who run it throughout the year. There’s even the opportunity to join the committee if you’d like – the more the merrier!
The AGM will take place on Thursday 28th July from 7:30 pm, at the Village Hall. All welcome, refreshments will be provided.
Community social night | 22nd July | 6:30-11:30
After a month’s break, and the excitement of the hugely successful village show, why not come and meet up with your neighbours at our July pub night? There will, as always, be home cooked food and a wide selection of drinks available. Plus traditional pub games and witty banter (maybe). Children welcome!
What a day! Huge thanks to everyone who supported our fete – from the committee, to the volunteers on the day and everyone who came along to the dog show and to enjoy the traditional fete entertainments.
The weather was kind, despite some fairly dire predictions, and the heavens only opened as we were packing up. We’re off for a well-earned rest before we have to start thinking about the next one!
Best pub night ever!
Record attendance sees village hall buzzing
The village hall was full to the rafters last night as record numbers attended the monthly pub night. The homemade meatballs and linguine were very popular, as ever washed down with a selection of beer, wine, prosecco and soft drinks (not necessarily all at once!).
The lighter evenings meant that the 10+ children that came along were able to use the outdoor play areas until about 9pm, after which there was some fairly competitive table tennis and snooker going on.
It was lovely to see several new faces and judging by the volume and conversation levels there was much to be discussed.

The next pub night will be on 22nd July.

A Royal Visit
The Princess Royal, Princess Anne visited Bellingdon on 14th July 2015 to see the new affordable housing in the village.
