Walking Football in Allington kicked off at the MUGA last Sunday. Despite it being cold and wet there was sufficient interest to provide a competitive game. Some found it difficult to adapt from running to walking while others had given up running a long time ago. At the end spirits were high and everyone (injuries permitting) agreed to meet up again the following week. So if you are interested in having a go just turn up at the MUGA this Sunday at 4.00pm.
As the name suggests walking football is a slightly slower version of the beautiful game. Whilst it is aimed at the over 50’s anyone can have a go. Allington’s playing field fundraisers have organised a training session on Sunday 22 February at the MUGA at 4.00pm. The objective is to find a few players to take on Collingham in a competitive fixture. Everyone is welcome.
Walking football is a non contact sport (or at least it is supposed to be). Anyone that sprints, runs or jogs while the ball is in play will be penalised with a free kick awarded to the other team. It is growing in popularity with teams and tournaments appearing around the country. More information can be found on the Walking Football United website.
Being served between 12 – 2pm Cost only £3.

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.
This year the riders set out from Silverstone on the 1st November after a quick photo at the start. The day was sunnier than anticipated but initially the ride was muddier than expected (it was great when I checked it in July – honest) but after we reached the Grand Union canal at Blisworth we made good time through Northampton and around Pitsford Water for lunch at the White Swan in Holcot.
