This month’s recipe from Allington W.I. comes from Vickie Withington. It’s for tomato and chilli salsa and is an ideal way to use all the tomatoes that will be with us soon. It’s lovely with cheese as well as a dip. Read more →

The organisers are pleased to report a steady flow of entrants for the first Allington Car Show to be held on 5th July at the Playing field in Allington village. It is expected that over 30 vehicles will be present.
Entrants include a number of MG’s ranging from the 1930’s to 1995, Lotus and Maseratis, Daimlers and Rolls Royce . Also names from the past such as Standard, Bristol. A truly eclectic collection.
The show is informal and not competitive, further entries are welcome. The Show will open to the public from 12.00 noon and facilities will include a licensed bar, tea, coffee soft drinks and cakes. There will be a marquee so even the weather can’t spoil this one!
Entry is free but there will be a collection for Kidney Research
Hello, Saturday whilst staying at Foston with a friend my dog escaped from the house through the catflap. She was last seen at 6pm 14/06 crossing the A1 heading across the fields towards Allington. The dog’s name is Maggie, she is a brown Cockapoo, cocker spaniel size. We live in Huddersfield so she is miles away from home. I can be contacted on 07855776303.
After a tremendous response form the local community Maggie was reunited with her owners on Wednesday. They would like to thanks everyone who offered support and describe the local community as unbelievable.
