Welcome to the village...
This is the website for Belthorn village in
Lancashire. It's a space for villagers past and present to share
information and the latest news on what's happening in our community.
If anyone has any recent photos taken in and around the village which might be of interest to other villagers (particularly seasonal ones) please e-mail them to me on firstname.lastname@example.org (jpeg) and I'll put them on the web site.
Belthorn Village Pond Project
You may have noticed the 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 arranged 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 is here 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:
Halloween - with popular local group The Monkeymen on Friday 31 October 2014. Fancy dress optional.
For more details on all the above events or their special offers please call Nick on 01254 265034, e-mail email@example.com or visit their website: www.thedoginnbelthorn.co.uk
