News from the Village of Carlby – Nov 2020

ARLBY PLAYING FIELD: We continue to work on improving the facilities at the Playing Field and the good news is we now have some more play equipment. We have added a seesaw, balance beams and some stepping-stones for everyone to enjoy.

More good news, we have finally managed to get the goal mouths levelled, following being let down by the landscaper who had promised to do the job! Thank you to eve- ryone for staying off the areas whilst the turf established itself and we hope you now enjoy the football pitch again.

We have had a couple of volunteering events to tidy up the tennis court and develop the rewilding areas. Thank you to everyone who gave their time to help-out, it really is appreciated. We are looking forward to seeing the results of all the hard work on the rewilding next spring and summer and hope this will encourage more people and wildlife to come and enjoy the Playing Field

There is still more to do so anyone needing to complete any volunteering e.g. Duke of Edinburgh, please let us know.

As a registered charity we need to raise funds in order to look after and develop the Playing Field facilities. We know that some companies have schemes where employ- ees can nominate charities for financial help. If you could help us in this way or want to volunteer, please contact us via our Facebook page or text 07904 098005.


We are pleased to report that we have been able to re-open the hall since mid- September, with new procedures in place to ensure we adhere to current Covid-19 government guidelines. Please be aware this is subject to change at short notice.

Any enquiries regarding booking the hall please email:


On Saturday 10th October a willing band of volunteers planted several hundred spring bulbs around Carlby, including the churchyard, village green and main road verges. A big thank you to everyone who helped with the planting.

Cost of the bulbs was met by Carlby Gardeners and donations from several villagers. Hopefully we can look forward to plen- ty of spring col- our next year!
