Filby Village News - 16th November 2017


Message from Adrian Chairman of Playing Field Committee,  

Please ensure the gates are locked and the barrier is down and locked when leaving the village hall or club room. Travellers are once again in the area and would soon be on our field if the opportunity arose.  Keys to the padlocks on the gates are on the key ring.


Dance Classes

If there is enough interest, it is intended to hold swing and lindy hop classes in the village hall. The class will probably be on a Friday evening. If this is of interest to you, please contact Steve Kennedy on 07710 205557 or Joy Baldry on 01493 369375 or No partner needed, just a relaxed evening of fun and tuition.


Filby Parish Council

The minutes of the Parish Council Meeting  of 5th October are now available. A new website for the Parish Council is under development.


Filby in Bloom

This Saturday, we meet at 9am at the farm opposite the Post Office. We hope to start potting up polyanthus saved from last year plus 1500 plugs due home first week in September, and a general tidy up.  Four new projects are already in the planning stage for 2018, starting at the Pound with a wildflower area and a wetland area managed by Ian Richardson, a new planted area at York Villa Close and a Pond clearance working with the Norfolk Wildlife Trust. Polyanthus saved from last year plus 1500 poly plugs, along with 300 Hyacinths have been potted up. If you have an ideas and would like to get involved call Adrian at the Post Office. The school children have harvested the potatoes from their veg patch, and are in future weeks picking apples and planting bulbs in the Filby in bloom greenhouses. Filby won the Best Village in Britain in Bloom with a Gold Medal Award - congratulations and thanks to all involved. Check our activities at our website Filby in Bloom is now on Facebook and Twitter, see website for more details. If you would like to help or get involved at any other time call Adrian on 01493 369250.
