The Duke of Kent visited Barford on Wednesday 4th May to officially open the King George`s playing fields. The children from St Peters school lined the street waving their flags as he walked  to Barford Village shop. He was most impressed by the shop. He then had a lunch in the Memorial Hall before leaving. The weather was fantastic which added to the whole amazing day for the village.

Volunteers wanted

We welcome new volunteers. If you would like to join our happy team, pop into the shop for more information. Our shifts are 3 hours long and you will be given full training. Come and join us and you can fit in whenever we have a gap and you are free! You do not have to do a shift every week. Many of our volunteers float and help out when they can. 

It is a great way to meet new people and find out what is going on in the village and you will be giving something back to the community at the same time.
