Mulled Wine & Mince Pies Night

Mulled Wine & Mince Pies Night with lighting of the village Christmas tree and carols. 

Saturday, 11th December, 6pm.

Come along and enjoy a pre-Christmas village get-together with a glass or two of mulled wine, nibbles and mince pies.  The big switch on will take place at around 6.30pm followed by a few carols to get us in the Christmas spirit (if the mulled wine hasn’t already done that!).

Everything is popping up in Farlington

You may have noticed lots of things popping up in the village recently, and there is more to come.

Firstly there is the return of the popular Pop-up Tea Room, taking place every weekend throughout August at the village Hall.

We’ve already had the first Pop-up BBQ of the summer, and another is planned for August 27th.

And finally we have a Pop-up Bike ride which ends with some well earned cake and refreshments at the Pop-up Tea Room on August 19th.

Hope you can pop down and join us!

The flavour is creamy and savoury, with a sweet and suble nutty hint.  It not only makes surprisingly good soup, it also makes a lovely pasta sauce, and it freezes well too.

Castle Howard walk

Length: 6.5 miles

Castle Howard is one of the best and most famous stately homes in England. With it’s inspiring history, and wonderful architecture, it has often been used as a film set for dramas and historical documentaries.  However for those of us who  want to walk around the grounds, and only catch glimpses of the great house, it is just as enjoyable.
