2nd star to the right and straight on to the Welby Arms….. The Biking Vikings ride again!!

The format is similar to previous years with a two day ride of approximately 90 miles raising money for the BBC Children in Need appeal.

This year’s route will start at the Grand Prix circuit at Silverstone, just off the A43. For the first day we’ll be riding approximately 47 miles, along bridle paths picking up the Grand Union canal which will take us to Northampton. There we’ll pick up the old railway, go around Pittsford Water and then back roads to Corby for our overnight stop.

Allington Morris – new members needed

Allington Morris celebrated its 25th anniversary in July last year with the splendid Strictly come Morris event in the village.

The team came together as an attraction at the then Allington Gala Day and has continued for 25 years entertaining locally and attending countrywide Morris events. The side attracted both dancers and musicians not only from the village but from a wide area. Unfortunately this season we are now becoming too small to be viable and it has been decided that if our numbers are not swelled in time for May Day we will sadly have to hang up our bells and baldricks . Allington Morris will be a tradition lost. Read more →
