Filby Village News - 8th January 2018


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.

Christmas Party

It was party time at Filby Village Hall, on the afternoon on Sunday 10th December, for the children of the village. Prompted, by way of a thank you, to the pupils of the village primary school, for their super contribution to the village’s In-Bloom team’s success in winning a Gold Medal and the accolade of Best Village in the U.K. in the R.H.S. Britain in Bloom competition; the event was organised by a committee of pupils' mums. Funding was provided by Filby in Bloom, Filby’s Playing Field Committee, Filby’s Poor Trust and by residents’ donations at the Village Post Office. In addition to the usual party fare, the mums organised a DJ, face painting, candyfloss, popcorn, snow and more glitter than ‘strictly’. Father Christmas arrived with presents and sweets for all and the afternoon was concluded with a firework display. Thanks to all involved and congratulations on the success of another great village event. Pictures


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.
