Invitations are extended to owners of interesting cars to an informal display to be held on the PLAYING FIELD Allington on 5th July.
There are no prescribed requirements for age or type of vehicle only that it should be of some interest to motoring enthusiasts and the public at large. We presently have entries including a number of Maseratis, MG’s etc. Read more →

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.
This month’s recipes are from Pam Jackson and Vickie Withington. Pam has sent us Tea Loaf (as in the first Allington cookbook). This recipe is originally from Norah Abbott, a previous W.I.member. We also have Grannies Ginger Snaps from Vickie. Read more →
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.
Another month and more recipes from Allington W.I. This time we have Stem Ginger Biscuits from Joy Hart and Sultana and Apple Cake from Lillian Petruck. Read more →
