Cupcake Day Success

We are pleased to say that our Cupcake Day on Sunday 13 June was a great success, and that we raised £75 for the Alzheimer’s Society. A huge thank you to everyone who came along and bought a cake! A special note of thanks goes out to those who baked cupcakes for us, and the team of volunteers who helped run the event.

Memories of Navenby

We will be holding an oral history project day on Saturday 17 July at the cottage called Memories of Navenby. Come and share your photos and memories of Navenby with us.

The event will be starting at 12noon and ending at 4pm.

Bring along your photographs of Navenby for us to scan and digitally add to the Navenby Archive (so you can keep the original). If you have stories to share about the village you can learn all about our Oral History collecting project, allowing us to record your memories.
