The editors Claire and Tricia are starting to put together the Winter issue of the Shenington Green so they are calling for articles, news items and ideas for topics you would like covered. They would love to hear from new people about new things, so don't be shy, make this the issue to which you wish to contribute.

Are you new to the village or have you got a new neighbour? Please let them know so they can welcome them. Did you take some photos of the summer village events? They would love to publish some colourful memories.

Whether a regular contribution or something completely new, it would be great if you could send a quick email as soon as you can, to let them know if they should be expecting something. Then the deadline for submissions is October 31st. 

Contact the editors Tricia Dempsey (tel. 01295 670433) and Claire Dumbreck (tel. 01295 678953) or email at if you have any questions.


For just £2 a month you have the chance to win the first prize of £50 in the monthly draw, while at the same time helping to preserve the Village Hall. Over the last three years the club has contributed £2,051 to the maintenance of the hall. Each month there is a draw and 50% of the income is divided amongst three lucky winners.

The Club is open to all members of the villages of Shenington and Alkerton provided they are over 16. Numbers are still available on a pro rata basis. Application forms are available at The Bell or from Maria Evans (phone 01295 670016) for anyone wishing to take part.


Preparations for the 2019 Village Calendar are underway with a deadline of October 31. If you would like to submit a photo to appear in the calendar please send it in as soon as possible

There's no theme this time so let your creative juices flow or just send one in you've taken previously. Photographs of this year's Shenfest, Village Fete, Village BBQ, or the upcoming Wine Tasting would be very welcome.
