Around the Village

There’s plenty to do around the village, from clubs and groups, regular and one-off events to Keep Fit and Pilates classes and scheduled walks.  Whatever your interest, you are almost certain to find activities or groups to suit.  We have a fine Village Hall, a well-stocked village shop (The Old Chapel Stores), Primary School, Pre-school and Toddler group and an historic parish church.  The Gaggle of Geese pub will re-open in due course - check here for progress. Use the buttons below to find out about other activities and facilities in and around the village:

General Information

Below is a list of regular events and events taking place over the next few weeks.  If you want your local event publicised here, please e-mail Webmaster

Defibrillator

The village has its own defibrillator, housed in an unlocked cupboard on an

outside wall of the Village Hall by the kitchen door, under the veranda.  In an

emergency, ring 999, then click here for list of runners who will bring the

defibrillator to you.

Wanted - handyperson; paid position

The Parish Council are looking for someone to help out with strimming, hedge cutting

and other small tasks/jobs that arise during the year around the village.  If you are

interested, please apply to the Parish Clerk at bucklandnewton@dorset-aptc.gov.uk

2018 Buckland Newton Fete

What would you like to see at your Fete this year?  Come along to an open meeting

in the Village Hall on Thursday 15th March at 7.30 pm to have a chat and let us know

your views.  Click on the graphic at left for more information. Thank you!

Steve Workman’s report on the 2017 August Bank Holiday Village Fete, including the

financial results, is now available to read here.  Congratulations to all involved for

another great day and excellent financial results!

Attention “Dog Walkers” who use the footpath through Lydden

Meadow

Please remember these grounds are private and should be treated as you would your

own private garden. PLEASE BE FAIR AND THOUGHTFUL TO THE RESIDENTS. 

Make sure you stick to the public footpath which runs along the gravel drive through the

entrance, behind the houses and past the meadow to the field gate.  Most importantly,

please keep your dogs on a lead throughout the grounds and if they get caught short,

make sure you pick up any foul material and take it home for disposal.  The

overwhelming accumulation of dog dirt from dogs being walked through the grounds is

not just highly unpleasant for the residents, but a real health hazard to the several

young children who live in Lydden Meadow and love to play in the grounds…… even in

winter!  The bridge across the river is a private, not a public footpath. Although access

to all villagers was freely given in the past, from henceforth the gate will be locked to

reduce dog fouling.

Buckland Newton Flower Festival and Open Gardens in May

A Flower Festival and Open Gardens event is planned for Saturday 26th and Sunday

27th May from 12 noon till 5.00 pm with refreshments served in the Church.  More

details will be added here as the year progresses as we are well into the planning.   It

will be in aid of Marie Curie Nurses and Holy Rood Church's Flower Fund.  Provided

we raise sufficient funds, Holy Rood Church itself will also benefit.  The organisers are

looking for business sponsors to help cover costs so if anyone is able to help, please

contact Carol Grant at carolgrant.sw@gmail.com

(Photographs of the Flower Festival in June 2016 can be seen here )

The Gaggle has new owners!

If you would like to see how the refurbishment is coming along, and for news from the

Gaggle, The Gaggle of Geese now has its own Facebook page at

https://www.facebook.com/gaggleofgeesepub/

Best wishes, Simon and Sarah.  If you have any queries or think you could help in some

way then feel free to email us via hartandhops@gmail.com

The Fish and Chip Van

The Fish and Chip van visits Buckland Newton, usually on the last Tuesday of the

month.  We will be at the old bus shelter opposite Buckland Newton School from 5.00

pm with last orders at 7.00 pm.  If you want to read about the van and see the menu go

to www.mobilefishnchipsdorset.co.uk

EXTRA FISH & CHIPS!  Sorry!  Quiz has had to be cancelled, so no Fish & Chips

on Saturday 22nd.  Sarah and her fish and chip van is coming to the village hall

Saturday 24th February to supply the half time fish and chips for the Quiz Night in aid of

Stella Hayward Riding for the Disabled.  She should be able to serve others as well but

why not come for the whole evening anyway?  7.30 for 8.00pm start, tables of up to 6 at

£8 per person including supper.  Please book your place on 01300 345 119 as soon as

possible.

Tuesday 27th February

Tuesday 27th March

Tuesday 24th April

Tuesday 29th May

Just a thought - if you have a neighbour who might enjoy a meal from the van, but who

would find it difficult to get there and back, with their food still hot and crispy, perhaps

you could offer a home delivery service.  I hope you enjoy the van’s visits and to see

you there.

observation station for this forecast is RNAS Yeovilton); click for a 7-day weather

forecast.

Superfast Fibre Broadband

Following further work by the Superfast Dorset project, faster broadband is now

available to more residents in Buckland Newton, including Henley.  You will need to

contact your broadband supplier (ISP) to change over to fibre; this is not automatic and

will usually cost more than a non-fibre connection.  Please note however that those

houses served by Cabinet 2 (by the church) still cannot get fibre and there do not

appear to be any plans by Superfast Dorset or BT Openreach to change this situation. 

You can now register to be advised if and when fibre broadband is available for your

address.  Go to https://www.dorsetforyou.gov.uk/broadband/registration

As quite a few of these events and activities include partners, husbands, friends, family and residents of Buckland Newton and the surrounding villages, we have decided to advertise these under a new name: “The Village People”.   If you would be interested in joining us for any of the years events or would like more information please contact Amanda McKenna on 01300 345367 or email amandat62@outlook.com

Dates for your Diary

From 10th February, 10.00 am to 6.00 pm.  Snowdrops at Minterne Gardens.  Well- loved for its simple beauty & distinct honey-like scent, snowdrop flowers have a surprising & varied history in both folklore & modern storytelling. Today they are thought to be a simple, delicate symbol of hope, purity and consolation.  Often described as having the appearance of 3 drops of milk spilling forth from a bright green stem, expect to see carpets of these dainty white flowers adorning the banks in Minterne’s 27-acre wild woodland garden.  2-for-1 while the snowdrops last – (£6 for 2 adults.) More information at www.minterne.co.uk or call 01300 341370.

Friday 23rd February, 10.30 am to 12.00 noon, Village Hall.  Village Cafe.    We hold

a volunteer run cafe in the village hall every last Friday in the month from 10.30 to

around midday. You are welcome to come along and have coffee or tea and a slice of

homemade cake for the princely sum of £1.20. It’s a chance to catch up with friends or

meet new ones. It is self sufficient - we pay for the Hall rent. We don’t raise money for

anything so no one will ask you to buy a raffle ticket! No one will ask you to join things

or go to things going on in the village although we do let people advertise events by

leaving leaflets on the table! As I said it is volunteer run and I am always keen to know

of anyone who would like to go on the ‘rota’. For more information please ring me.

Annuals and bedding are very very welcome and houseplants of course also sell well.  Everything for the garden (maybe not Shasta daisies!) is valuable to us. And to support the plants we will be having Carol’s Wigwams and plant supports again!  Give us a ring if you have problems of any sort, storage, potting, collecting etc etc. Oh and we could do with a couple more volunteers to sell on the day.      Fizz Lewis 345521 and Jan Marpole 345560 Tuesday 29th May, 5.00 pm to 7.00 pm (last orders), the old bus shelter (opposite Buckland Newton School).  Fish & Chip van.
