So much goes on in Sidbury

By viewing this blog most will no doubt have an interest in Sidbury village, as well as its pub, the Red Lion. To have a look at what is going on in Sidbury over the next 3 weeks go to the  information packed village website at

In the village over the next few weeks you can take part in, or just relax and watch, games of rounders. Additionally, you can support the village cricket team as they play their next few matches. All of these pre-supposes that the weather will return to something like Spring! You can even support a local coffee morning in aid of the Children's Society - volunteers will be supplying refreshments, so show them and the charity your support! There's even a social evening.

If all of this isn't enough to show what a busy set of lives Sidbury villagers have, then the village website can show you all of the local societies and clubs, along with information about who to contact, and how to do so, should you be tempted to get involved in something locally. Go on give something new a try!

The village website (many thanks!) also has listed this Sunday's open meeting for local residents which has been called to discuss setting up a campaign group and a steering group to take steps to retain the Red Lion as an asset for the community. To remind you - the meeting is on  Sunday 19 May at 12.30pm in the pub's skittle alley. Come one, come all!

If you have yet to print off and display the poster - please do! -advertising the open meeting you can access it by following this link
