Welcome to the village...
This is the website for Belthorn village in
Lancashire. It is a space for villagers past and present to share
information about the latest news and what's happening in our community.
Belthorn Village Pond Project
You may have noticed the recent work carried out to the front of the village pond. The shoreline has been raised and filled with chippings to prevent water seepage onto the cobbled area adjoining the pavement. Luckily the ducks seem happy with the improvements.
This work was organised by the village committee and grant funded by the Windfall fund administered by the Prospects Foundation. Match funding was also grateful received from Lancashire County Council's Green Partnership Awards.
Well, the festive season is now upon us and I have no doubt we will all soon be out chatting to each other about what's planned so why not get yourself down to the Dog and support the new landlord and chef? We need our village pub - use it or lose it....!
The following village events are planned in the Dog Inn for the Christmas 2013 period:
Children's Christmas Party, with magician, lots of fun and a visit from Santa - on Saturday 7 December from 2.00 - 4.00 pm. There are still a few tickets left to be bought from the Dog Inn by the extended deadline of Saturday 30 November.
