CARLBY VILLAGE HALL: The Village Hall has had a risk assessment carried out and, with several adjustments with hand sanitisers etc, is available 

for hire and is currently being used by two groups. However, in view of the uncertainty of the current Covid situation, we are not planning to hold our monthly pub/quiz nights until at least September, when we hope to get back to business as usual! 

CARLBY PLAYING FIELD: THANK YOU to everyone who has donated money towards adding a climbing frame & slide to the Playing Field via our Crowdfunding page

This does require significant investment to provide a long lasting, safe solution and we would love to achieve this in 2021. The Playing Field Committee are also actively applying for any grants to help, but there are lots of other good causes doing the same. 

We would really appreciate any company sponsorship. Please let us know on 07904 098005 if you have any contacts you think could help us raise funds, we need all the help we can get! 

Following the support and feedback on Facebook, options for a small bike track at the top end of the Playing Field have been progressed, before sharing the final proposal. 

We have been providing updates via leaflets, posters and on Facebook and will continue to let you know how the fundraising and bike track plans are progressing. 

Hope everyone is enjoying the improvements made to the Playing Field over the last year and we have a sunny summer.
