Litcham ENTERTAINMENT Group (LEGs) Stephen LYNN : (01328) 700 978

The group was established following a conversation between myself and a group of village youngsters looking for something to do in the evenings.

We number around twenty and the original plan was to produce a variety show but ended up producing our first pantomime 'Cinderella' which played to full houses between 12th-14th January 2006 and was considered by all to be a great success.

We have since produced versions of Aladdin and Jack and the Beanstalk

We meet on Tuesdays from in the Methodist chapel and would welcome anyone who would like to join us, especially those of the male persuasion.

Litcham COMMON Conservation Group Tim ANGELL : (01328) 700 045

The group was formed by local residents in January 2004, in order to carry out much needed conservation work on the common.

We meet on the 2nd Saturday of each month, starting at 10 am in the Common car park, children are welcome but they must be carefully supervised.

We usually carry on until at least lunchtime but don't worry if you can't spare the whole morning; even if you only come for an hour or so you will be most welcome. All tools and equipment including protective gloves are provided free


BELL RINGERS   Tim ANGELL : (01328) 700 045

Bellringing has taken place in Litcham since around 1670, when Matthew Halcott paid for the present church tower to be built.

Matthew Halcott's name is inscribed on one of the bells, as is that of Thomas Feltwell, one-time innkeeper of the Bull Inn.

Over the years ringers have carved their names in the church tower, and these can be seen clearly today, one of the earliest being T. Slapp from 1734.

Today many thousands of people enjoy bellringing as a hobby, with the added satisfaction that they can also provide a service for others, for example by ringing for weddings and other church services. Anyone who would be interested in learning is welcome to come along for a "taster" session (without obligation!).

Litcham HISTORICAL and AMENITY Society David Sheppard : (01328) 700 609

The Society has a large collection of artefacts and records from the local area dating back several hundred years and a collection of local photographs some over a hundred years old.

We always welcome the contribution (or loan) of artefacts which may have some significance from the past. Remember it will be your ancestors who would look back on these items in the future and be reminded of your village life. History is happening as we speak. The way we live now will be of historical interest many years from now. So if you have anything you believe may be relevant to village life please get in touch.
