Belthorn Village Committee
Belthorn has a village committee of local volunteers, who produce the Belthorn Link newsletter, and organise a range of community and fund-raising events throughout the year. 
Downloads of recent Link newsletters and minutes of meetings are available below.
The committee is desperately in need of additional members who are able to devote some time to get involved in village life, help maintain Belthorn's village traditions and be involved in arranging social and environmental events.  It would be great if the committee had enough willing and able members to arrange some summer 2015 social events.
Please help us to help the village by contacting myself, committee secretary (Marianne Davies - email: or any committee member if you are interested in becoming involved, in any way, in joining the committee and helping improve village life.
Meetings for 2015 will be held in The Pack on Tuesdays at 7.30pm.  The next meeting will be held on 3 March.
Hopefully, in the New Year if the committee can recruit more volunteers who are willing and able to put some time and effort into upholding tradition and improving village life then we can arranging some summer events on the recreation ground or school field.  Syke Mill's UKI installations, in December, kindly donated £500 towards village events.
Current Committee Members are:
Clive Carroll - Chair     Jean Bain Treasurer
Marianne Davies (Secretary)           Judith Hamilton
Collette Fuen Riding      John Heffernan
     Gary Riding   Paul Carroll and Andy Bain
Please come along and spare any amount of time you can to volunteering and gain personal satisfaction from working to improve life in Belthorn and maintain is traditional, rural village environment.

Village Paper bank - unfortunately, since the closure of the Dog Inn, the paper bank has been removed.  It hopefully will be replaced if someone takes over management of the Dog Inn and is agreeable to it being sited on the car park.
The committee would like to thank all villagers for taking the time and trouble to deposit their waste paper and cardboard in the skip which raised money to  help cover the village committee's outgoings, expenses etc.
