  • Newnham Paddox received LEADER funds to host a Country Fair to celebrate the rich rural culture and heritage of Monks Kirby and the surrounding area and continue a tradition granted by Royal Decree nearly 750 years ago.

    The event, held on Sunday June 24th 2012, offered a wide variety of stalls, exhibitions, competitions and demonstrations to local residents and visitors. With support from the Monks Kirby Village Hall Committee, the Earl and Countess of Denbigh succeeded in putting on a "brilliantly British Family day out!" which they plan to carry on in years to come.

  • Ryton subway has been given a fantastic new makeover by local residents of Ryton-on Dunsmore. Children (and helpers) of the village were given a challenging task to transform the subway over the school holidays (2011) with the support from a resident artist and Ryton Youth Group.  


    The result is simply wonderful!
