Memory Tree

There will be a Memory Tree this year at St John the Baptist Church at Holcombe Burnell. We invite you to write a message in memory of a loved one this Christmas and hang it on our tree which will be blessed at Christmas time.

Getting Ready

Red candle and pine cones

December is the time to get ready for that which comes much later in the month. There are three and a half weeks of preparation before the celebration.

Temporary Road Works and Closures

Powerline and pole

If you hadn’t already noticed, there has been plenty of traffic lights in the village over the last few days. National Grid are completing extensive work to replace the old poles and cables that carry our electricity.

Lots to Remember

November is a month when we remember. On a light-hearted level, we remember the Guy Fawkes of 1605. On a more serious note, we remember Armistice Day.

Panto treads again

After a long break, the Longdown Pantomime Group are hoping to tread the boards once again next year.

Great Moves Spotted at Disco

Three wild people

Yes, there were some great moves spotted at the Social Club’s 70s and 80s Disco.  But there were also some distinctly dodgy moves spotted as well.

Historic Moment

History was made at the Longdown Village Hall on the 12th September 2002 as the proclamation in Holcombe Burnell and Longdown formally announced the accession of His Majesty King Charles III.
