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, Autumn will soon be upon us with its falling leaves and beautiful colours in the gorgeous countryside around the village which should encourage us to move out into the great outdoors and get some fresh air and exercise. Why not take to the many paths and explore our village and its surrounding countryside, maybe ending the walk by partaking of a little light refreshment or a bite to eat in the Dog Inn or The Pack. Or if you're thinking of a night out or just don't feel like cooking tonight why not leave the car at home and just stroll along to the Dog Inn, take advantage of their latest offers and support Nick and his team who are planning lots of exciting events for the remainder of the year? We need our village pub - use it or lose it....!
Many special events are planned at the Dog Inn for 2014:
Village BBQ - Saturday 30 August 2014
Village BBQ at the Dog Inn will take place on Saturday 30 August from 12 noon until late. Lots of activities are planned for the whole family including children's games, fire engine visit, sweets stand, bric-a-brac stalls (available at £5 per stall from any member of the village committee or from Nick at the Dog Inn).
