Collingham 3 Allington 2

SAM_1381Allington’s first foray into competitive walking football ended in defeat at Collingham on Friday evening. Nonetheless there was much to be pleased about. Allington fell behind early in the game and despite going 2 – 0 down started to find their rhythm as the match progressed. At the interval the score was 3 – 1 so it really was a game of two halves as Allington dominated the second period, scoring and pressing hard for the equaliser towards the end.

Parish Council Elections 2015

election (1)No, don’t stop reading! There will be three elections taking place in Allington in May 2015. It is hoped you will be choosing the best person for the job for Government, local council and Parish council. Luckily the PC is a non political vote. The important thing is that we HAVE a vote in Allington

For this we need at least 8 candidates to have an election and elect the seven people who we think will best serve our community for the next four years. Allington Parish councillors must obviously have a commitment to the village and be prepared to give time to attend each bi-monthly council meeting, serve on advisory groups between the council meetings and to act upon decisions taken at these meetings in the best interest of the whole village and all of us who live here.

The current Parish Councillors are asking everyone to consider either standing themselves or nominating another as a candidate. Information about candidates will be provided when available.

Tidying Up

On Saturday 11 October the Playing Field Fundraisers and other volunteers tidied the small wooded area at the top of the playing field. This land is leased by the Parish Council and forms part of the new community wood.

Allington Hall C1900

These photos have been sent in by Anne Varley from Somerset. They are believed to show Allington Hall around 1900. They feature some of Anne’s relatives. Ann Jackson is now investigating. In the meantime if anyone can shed any light on them please let us know.

The pictures can be seen in higher resolution on The Allington Flickr account.


If you are fed up with potholes, litter and other issues that your local council should be attending to its a good idea to report it. However, it’s not always easy to know who is the responsible authority . Not everyone realises that the County Council looks after roads, the District Council manages litter and that sometimes they do things for each other. That’s where FixMyStreet can help.

If you follow the link above you will be taken to the FixMyStreet website where you can report issues like potholes, graffiti, and fly tipping. If you want to know  what is being reported locally look down the right hand side of our home page. You will see the latest issues within a 10 km radius of Allington.
