Littlethorpe Life September 2023

Scarecrow Festival

If this edition of The Journal reaches you in time, don’t forget we are running the Littlethorpe Scarecrow Festival from 16th to 23rd September, with the theme All Things Royal.

On the final day, Saturday 23rd September, we will be serving afternoon teas in the village hall, along with games, a cake stall (any cake donations gratefully received on the day), a tombola and a raffle. Please do come along.

Art Club Trip

Back on Thursday 13th July, a group from the fortnightly Littlethorpe Art Club went to Patchings Art Festival in Calverton, just north of Nottingham.

There were many artists demonstrating and selling their work. There were also many firms displaying and selling artists’ materials at a reduced rate. Around the attractive site there were many interesting and delicious food outlets to enjoy in the glorious weather.

The group found the day very inspiring. Thanks to the LCA for part-funding the event and to Dave Weedon for driving the minibus.

Our regular LCA activities will be continuing as usual:

The Art Club continues in the village hall on Biddle Road on Tuesdays 2pm-4pm. The cost is £4.00 per session. For more information contact Tom Bates on 0116 275 2656.
