2021 village Day LEIGH VILLAGE DAY 2021 - The village fair 2021 is going to be aimed at getting the community back together after a very different and unsettled 18months. We are hoping that this village day can be one for everyone local to reconnect, enjoy some live music, hot food, drinks, cakes and good company.

We would love to know if this open air (marquee) event, which will adhere to any necessary covid regulations at the time, is something that villagers and the local community, would like to attend?

It is run for the community, so we would love any/all feedback about running an event this year. It would be useful for us to gauge interest and also understand any concerns people may have about attending. Hopefully we can offer reassurance about the safety of it too.

Thank you. See LoM Fair page on Facebook

Please submit your planned event dates & details here. (Help to prevent a clash of village events!)

WI-inspiring women Women's Institute  We are currently unable to run our formal programme due to COVID-19, but are in touch via email, post and Zoom meetings. New ladies are welcome to join in without commitment.

See WI blog for on-line activity.
Memorial Hall Memorial Hall Since May 17th the hall has been available for bookings, but we have to conform to the ‘rule of six’ for the time being. The only exception has been the complete return of the Baby and Toddlers group on Tuesday mornings, for which the government guidelines allow an exception. We remain hopeful that all our usual activities can return after June 21st, but we will keep our hirers informed.

Click here to see the pre-COVID activities which will hopefully be returning in the next few months.

The Hall's 100 club has normally run from March until December each year. Last year we decided to suspend the club due to the complications of contacting members under the Covid restrictions. We will review the situation from time to time and let people know when we decide to re start. In normal times the club is a significant help towards your Hall's running costs as well as providing a little boost for the winners so we hope when the time comes as many of you as possible will support us.

Sue Vaughan, Chair of Hall Committee
