So what are the ideas and plans for 2019 ?
- a) Further participation in the 100 Club
A great way for you to support us whilst having a bit of a flutter!
How it works (high level) … £24 buys you one membership number (for a year) which enters you into the monthly draw. Over the year, the prizes will total more than 48% of the annual income. All remaining funds go to the BVF fund to help fund future village events, support our nominated charities and for the betterment of Barton.
- b) Red Nose Day Race Night - Friday 15th March
Under plan. Similar format to the Race Night event held previously, location : The Cottage of Content.
Details to be communicated once the plan is more solid.
- c) Barn Dance - Saturday 22nd June
Similar format to the successful Barn Dance of 2017, location : The Cottage of Content.
The “caller” is booked – but the event needs further planning. Details to be communicated once the plan is more solid.
- d) Treasure Hunt (in cars)
Date TBC but April is a possibility. Again, similar format to previous treasure hunts, but hopefully with more cars and maybe less arguments J
- e) Darts Event & Auction of Promises
The darts evening in November was enjoyed by many and now looking to “spice it up” a bit more – and also combine it with an Auction of Promises. To be planned.
We have Murder Mystery as an idea too – maybe for next year – let’s see how the above events progress over the next few months.
If you have any ideas and/or feedback, please let me know.
And finally – on the evening of Thursday March 7th is an extra special Quiz night at the Cottage, part of the “World’s Biggest Pub Quiz” http://worldsbiggestquiz.pubaid.com/ - so if you are interested, Julia at The Cottage has more details. It will be team based.
Welcome to the Barton website!
Barton is a designated hamlet in South Warwickshire, very close to the borders of Worcestershire and Gloucestershire and close to the Cotswolds. Stratford-upon-Avon is just a few miles to the east, and there are many other interesting attractions in the area, details of which you can find on this website.
Barton was once famous for its cider apples, and whilst that may be in the past, you can certainly get a decent pint of cider in The Cottage of Content! We’re a small community, a real ‘blink and you’ll miss it’ kind of place. But as you’ll see, a lot goes on in Barton.
Some of you will be aware that the site has been down for some time, which was due to a security issue with our hosting provider. Hopefully that has been resolved now, and we should not see any more downtime! This is a community website jointly funded by the Barton Village Fund and me – if you have anything you would like to see included or dates for the diary, please get in touch with me.
